A Pennsylvania judge ruled Tuesday that Lee Kaplan, the Festerville man arrested in June after police allegedly rescued 12 girls from his home, will stand trial for sexual assault and related charges, PEOPLE confirms.
Bucks County Assistant District Attorney Kate Kohler tells PEOPLE that the parents of many of the 12 girls, who ranged in age from 6 months to 18 years old, will also stand trial. The girls’ father, Daniel Stoltzfus, was charged with conspiracy to commit statutory sexual assault and child endangerment. Their mother, Savilla Stoltzfus, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child. When Kaplan, 51, was arrested, Savilla Stoltzfus was also living in Kaplan’s home.
According to authorities, the Stoltzfuses allegedly “gifted” their then 14-year-old daughter, now 18, to Kaplan in exchange for financial help. Authorities allege Kaplan impregnated the girl and that she had two children by him: a six-month-old and a 3-year-old.
