A Fort Pierce couple, Juan Moreno, 34, and Joanna Moreno, 31, are accused of forcing one of three girls living in their home to spend most of her time in the backyard, reports TCPalm.com.
She was allowed inside only at night to sleep on the floor -- without sheets and blankets.
Now they are in jail, where they are getting three hots and a cot -- which is more that they provided for the child.
Joanna Moreno is on a hold for federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement. DCF took custody of the children.
