Woman discusses forced exorcism allegations
November 14, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

STOCKTON — A California woman whose husband and son are accused of kidnapping her to perform an exorcism says they made her drink oil and told her she had three devils inside her.

Forty-one-year-old Blanca Farias told News10 in Sacramento she was held down in the backseat of a pickup truck Saturday after being picked up in Stockton.

Her husband, 42-year-old Jose Magana-Farias, and son, 20-year-old Victor Farias, are scheduled to appear in court Wednesday. It was not immediately clear whether they had attorneys.

Blanca Farias said she was taken to a church, where the father and son and a pastor bathed her in oil that they made her drink.

She said the pastor told her she was possessed as she threw up. The pastor is not expected to face charges.

She said she was able to text her boyfriend, and authorities were waiting when she returned home.
