PHILADELPHIA - A judge denied a change of venue for a Bucks County man accused of fathering two children with a teenage girl.
Lee Kaplan will be tried in Bucks County and the jury will also be from there.
Kaplan was arrested back in June 2016, after police said they found 12 children living at his home in Feasterville.
He faces numerous charges, including sexually assaulting a teenager whom he allegedly had two children with.
Authorities say the girl was was "gifted" to him by her parents in exchange for financial help.
Savilla Stoltzfus and her husband, Daniel Stoltzfus pled guilty last week and are awaiting sentencing.
Authorities say Savilla Stoltzfus also lived with Kaplan for several years and was considered one of his wives.
They say the couple thought Kaplan was helping them "transition from the Amish lifestyle."
