Therese Ann Cook, 58, Paul Cook, 52, Yyani Cook-Williams, 30, and Clarissa Meredith, 23, and three juveniles pleaded not guilty to more than 120 charges combined.
Defence lawyer Bryan Wrench told Nine News outside court: “This is probably one of the greatest miscarriages of justice this state has seen.”
NSW Police said a review has been requested.
“The NSW Police Force notes the withdrawal of all charges against seven people, including four women, two men, and a teenage girl at Penrith Local Court today,” a statement said.
“It remains the strong recommendation of the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad that the matters proceed before the court and a review has been requested.”
A spokeswoman for the DPP told news.com.au a number of charges have been dropped in the case, it is not yet clear how many.
