EDISON - A group of New Jersey families are expected to testify in front of a sate Senate committee Monday over alleged abuse their children faced in group homes.

Each family says their developmentally disabled children were all abused at some point in different group homes.

The cases never went to the police or any court, something the families say they want to change. The families say they support a state resolution to involve the New Jersey attorney general. Normally, the cases are addressed only by the Department of Human Services.

The hearing is slated for this Monday at 1 p.m.
