The other son, Dario Santiago Hernandez-Chavarria, had his bail set at $150,000, charged with oral copulation and sexual penetration of a child who is 10 years of age or younger.

Their father, Hernandez-Hernandez, faces charges of lewd acts with a juvenile under 14 years old. His bail was set at $80,000.
