A man who wanted his 10- and 11-year-old sons to learn the facts of life forced them to have sex with their mother in a motel room, police say.
The parents, who were not identified to protect the children, were arrested and charged with six counts of forced oral copulation and could get life in prison, the Oakland Tribune reported Thursday.
The father acted after discovering the two boys were cuddling with girls. The boys first watched the Playboy channel, drank beer and smoked marijuana before having sex with their mother, police said.
The parents, homeless people who worked at a carwash, did not have custody of the boys, who visited them only on weekends.
