8 family members charged in sexual abuse of young girl
Police charged six brothers and their parents with the sexual abuse of a young girl in North Carolina, after more than a year of investigating the case.
According to WTKR, the girl, now 16, says the brothers sexually abused her since she was four years old until she was fourteen. Police also charged the parents, John and Nita Jackson, because they witnessed the abuse.
Eric, Jon, Matthew, Nathaniel, Benjamin and Aaron Jackson, who range in age from 19 to 27, were homeschooled with the girl, the Perquimans County sheriff said.
One of the brothers came forward in 2012, but the parents did not allow the girl to talk. After the family moved to Colorado, the girl spoke to Child Protective Services and the Perquimans County Sheriff’s Department.
The brothers are being held on a $150,000 bond, and the parents were released on a $15,000 bond.
