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.

    What are these dummies smirking about? They raped their sister, their friends and family are now aware of this and they will be registered sex offenders for the rest of their lives. Pathetic human beings.

    If we would just keep God in our Schools, these kinds of people wouldn't have to wait until prison to hear about HIm….

      Mr. Bill…these perverts were homeschooled. It's been my experience that large families that are homeschooled are extremely religious.

      Either way…what kind of "God" allows a young girl to be abused like this????
