WC couple accused of caging autistic kids plead not guilty
The Westchester couple accused of allegedly neglecting their autistic sons entered not guilty pleas in front of a judge Monday on charges that they abused their autistic sons.
James and Jean Yates were arrested last week after police discovered "unsanitary living conditions" inside of the couple's home. Police say that the Yates were also keeping their teenaged sons in mesh-netting cages.
The Yates tell News 12 Westchester that they are innocent and that they simply became overwhelmed trying to keep their house clean while caring for their autistic sons.Police: WC couple accused of endangering autistic kids
