According to local media, the children were raped over several years by various adults in their entourage, including family members.
After a lengthy investigation the ten suspects aged between 30 and 64 were arrested arrested this week. They were picked up near Bourgoin-Jallieu and in Chambery in the Isere department of the eastern French Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes.
The alleged crimes took place between 2016 and December 2018. The three siblings are two girls aged four and seven and their 10-year-old half brother.

While in police custody, the ten detainees reportedly rejected the accusations before later admitting to them.

The victims’ mother and stepfather were placed in pre-trial detention on Thursday afternoon.
The stepfather has been charged with child rape while the mother has been charged with incestuous child rape, among other charges.

The prosecutor told local media: ‘Not everyone agreed to answer questions during the interrogation, so they will be the subject of further hearings and investigations.’
According to the French newspaper Le Dauphine Libere, who first broke the story, 10 adults aged 30 to 64, unnamed in reports, were arrested and placed in police custody on Monday morning.
The prosecutor said that the abuse, which reportedly took place between summer 2016 and the end of 2018, ‘and especially after the children’s mother started a relationship’ with the stepfather, was revealed last September by the 10-year-old half brother.

He claimed that his own mother and stepfather had repeatedly raped him for years and that his sisters had been subjected to the same ordeal.
The children were also reportedly made to carry out sex acts on one another and have sex with the family dog.
A judicial inquiry, opened on October 25 2018, gave rise to ‘numerous environmental and technical investigations’.
Vaillant said: ‘As the months passed, the boy and his seven-year-old sister made new revelations to their teachers and other adults, referring to repeated and regular sexual abuse by the people around them including their mother, aunt, uncle, grandmother and family friends’.
The abuse allegedly took place during ‘private family parties’, according to local media.
The three children, who have been placed in foster care since January 2018, are said to be suffering from ‘developmental delays and behavioural problems’, according to the prosecutor.
However, he added that they ‘have evolved positively since being placed in foster care’.
The investigation is ongoing.
