prison on Friday
Two of their adult children read victim impact statements to the court as they spoke publicly for the first time since being freed in January 2018
Their 30-year-old daughter Jennifer said her parents took her life away from her but she is fighting to take it back
Her brother, Joshua, 27, said he still has nightmares about him and his siblings being chained up or beaten
The couple also addressed the court and apologized for harming their children
They pleaded guilty in February to 14 felony counts of abusing and imprisoning 12 of their 13 children in their home
The abuse only came to light in January 2018 when their 17-year-old daughter Jordan escaped from the home and called 911
Horrific details then emerged of the extent of torture, abuse and neglect that the children - aged between two and 29 at the time - had endured
It was so severe it stunted their children's growth, led to muscle wasting and left two of their daughters unable to bear children

Key moments in the Turpins' emotional sentencing hearing:

· Their daughter Jennifer, 30, read a victim impact statement saying her 'parents took her whole life' from her

· Son Joshua, 27, said he still has nightmares about him and his siblings being chained up or beaten

· David and Louise wept as they listened to their children speaking about the abuse in public for the first time

· Daughter Joy defended her parents in a statement that was read out in court, saying 'our parents didn't know we were malnourished'

· The couple addressed the court and apologized for harming their 13 children

· Judge Keith Schwartz put in place restraining orders to prevent Turpins contacting their children from prison

· Judge sentenced them to life in prison with possibility of parole in 25 years
