Six Brothers Arrested for Sexually Abusing a Girl Starting at Age Four — Their Parents Knew and Did Nothing
Some stories are just so repulsive and terrible that we think it can’t possibly be true. Such is the case with a North Carolina family, where six brothers sexually abused a girl for years starting at the age of four. Even worse is that their parents knew, and allowed it to continue.
A North Carolina family have been charged over claims that six brothers sexually abused a girl for nearly a decade, while their parents failed to intervene.
The Jackson brothers and their parents, John and Nita, were arrested last Tuesday, after a year-long investigation into the home-schooled family.
The abuse, which allegedly started when the girl was four years old, came to light after one of the brothers confessed to a pastor in 2012 that he had sinned.
During the years of the alleged abuse, which continued until the victim was 14, the family lived in a dilapidated house in Perquimans County, where neighbors say they kept to themselves.
One of the brothers allegedly told police that his mother had witnessed the abuse on at least one occasion but just walked away.
It really makes you wonder what kind of childhood these boys had, that all six of them could find it acceptable to rape a four-year-old girl for a decade. There is no excuse for what these boys did, but it seems obvious that their parents bear a strong responsibility for these reprehensible acts.
