Brooks says at least 10 victims ranging in age from 12 to 16 have come forward. But she says as many as 40 or more juveniles from Caddo, Bossier, and Desoto parishes have visited the home in the past year.
Bond has been set at $300,000 for Melissa, $75,000 for Cole, and $25,850 for Robert Greenwalt.
