In Topeka on Monday, 19-year-old Victoria Sharp talked about an attempt to get a Kansaas judge to award custody of her siblings to her father so they can live together in Colorado. She spoke outside the Shawnee County Courthouse in Topeka. In July, a judge removed the children from the Auburn, Kan., home of their mother, Odalis Sharp, after they testified of beatings and other abuse. The family rose to national prominence earlier this year when they performed for armed occupiers who took over the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon.
