Update on the six HSed brothers who assaulted their sister


Recommended Posts

See thread here




“You’ll go to Hell if you tell anyone,†her older brothers would warn. Sometimes they would also threaten to kill her. The sexual assaults began when the now-17-year-old girl was four, escalated into incest and rape at some point, and continued for a decade. After each assault, they would ask for her forgiveness.

On Thursday, four of the six brothers plead guilty at the Perquimans County Court in North Carolina, according to WTKR. The charges against the six Jackson brothers are different for each one, and include statutory rape, rape of a child less than six years old, first degree sex offense, and incest.

Alas, the four Jackson brothers got away with pleading guilty to lesser sexual offenses. According to WTKR:

Eric [age 27] and Matthew [23] were both sentenced to serve between 144 and 182 months in jail. Benjamin was sentenced to serve 24 months in jail.

Nathaniel Jackson [21] pleaded no contest as part of a plea deal. He was sentenced to serve 24 months in jail.

Jon Jackson [25] is expected to take a plea deal but could not enter a plea due to a conflict with the judge. His case has been continued for the time being.

The remaining Jackson brother, 19-year-old Benjamin, has demanded a trial. Eric and Matthew tearfully apologized to their sister and asked for her forgiveness in court. She answered:

“Forgiveness is not mine to give. It’s God’s. You need to take it up with Him.â€


And where were these siblings parents while this was going on? WAVY reports John and Nita Jackson knew what was happening and did nothing to stop it. In fact, they grabbed the kids and high-tailed it to Colorado when they got wind of the investigation. Luckily, the authorities caught up with the Jackson family and were able to get the girl talk with them. She currently lives with relatives. According to WAVY:

Their parents, John and Nita Jackson, are also facing child neglect, child abuse, and accessory to sexual abuse charges related to this case. They appeared in court for a bond hearing — a judged decided to keep them in custody. Nita and John Jackson will be back in court in August.

Thanks for the update. Glad the girl is getting some justice. I hope she is getting the counseling she needs.

That's so horrible :( Im glad that justice has been done though, and that the brothers went to jail. Im also glad that the parents were charged for letting it happen and not protecting the daughter.

What a freak show that household was. Glad the parents have some jail time to think about.

Many prayers for this young survivor.

Thanks for the update. I'm glad the eldest brothers got serious jail time. Eric's sentence may be shorter because he was the brother who finally blew the whistle.

Eric confessed to Dan Horn of NCFIC, VF, and Hope Baptist Church fame. Dan apparently took this seriously and went with him to the police. I wish Dan Horn took other accusations of sexual abuse as seriously. See Doug Phillips (is a Tool).
