A Pennsylvania couple was sentenced to serve 18 months of probation Tuesday after pleading guilty to neglect charges.

Police found five of their children riding in the back of a moving truck in November.

41 year old David K. Detjen, 40 year old Rebecca S. Detjen, of Fairmount City, Penn., will serve their sentence in Pennsylvania.

The sentencing was part of a plea agreement.

David Detjen has a prior conviction in Wayne County, Ind., related to a 1990 child molestation case, plus he also has a 2001 theft conviction on his record.

Both David and Rebecca Detjen were convicted of child endangerment in 2005.

The family said they were in the process of moving to California for work.
