Imprisoned parents: School bus home only temporary

Imprisoned parents of 2 Texas children found living in school bus say home was only temporary By The Associated Press

SPLENDORA, Texas (AP) ' The imprisoned father of two children found living in an abandoned school bus in Texas says the family home was only meant to be temporary.

Mark Shorten said Thursday he had planned to build a house on the wooded lot near Houston. But then he and his wife were arrested in 2010 on charges of embezzling money from Hurricane Ike victims.

Child welfare agents took custody of the children this week after a postal worker became concerned about the unkempt siblings, who are 5 and 11.

Shorten said an aunt asked to watch the kids couldn't keep up. Sherrie Shorten, the children's mother, said she's getting out of prison in 30 days and was coming home to take care of the kids.
