In December 2012, North Carolina's Eric Jackson reportedly went to a church elder to make a confession: He and his five brothers had abused a young girl over the course of a decade. He reportedly said he needed to "walk in the light and confess his sin."

More than a year later, Eric's decision to clear his conscience has resulted in charges against him and his siblings, as well as their parents, who are suspected of knowing about what was happening to the girl, who's now sixteen and living in Colorado, but did nothing to stop it.

According to Virginia's WAVY-TV, the Jackson brothers, who range in age from nineteen to 27, were home schooled and don't have much education. Moreover, the family is described as a group of loners who've turned their once-beautiful Perquimans County property into a pig sty. However, they clearly took their religion seriously. Note that Eric, a professional piano tuner, named his business Redeeming the Tune.

In search of non-musical redemption, Eric is said to have reached out to Elder Dan Horn from Hope Baptist Church in Wake Forest, North Carolina early in 2012; numerous members of the family had attended the church for several years previous to that time. According to Horn, who spoke to WAVY-TV in a video on view below, Eric "said he had something he needed to talk about regarding his family, but he wasn't ready to go into the details."

By year's end, Eric had gotten up the courage to come clean, Horn says. But he didn't go to authorities on his own. After a couple of counseling sessions, Horn phoned the local Perquimans County Sheriff's Office on his own and eventually accompanied Eric to meet with investigators. There, Eric repeated his confession to law enforcers.

Busts weren't immediately forthcoming, however. The Colorado Springs Gazette quotes a local North Carolina newspaper, the Perquimans Weekly, as reporting that the victim was initially uncooperative.

She wasn't the only one. In an interview with WAVY-TV, Perquimans County Sheriff Eric Tilley said the Jackson boys' parents, John and Nita, refused to speak with him or anyone else from his office.

Did the elder Jacksons know what had been going on? One of the brothers reportedly told investigators that Nita had walked in on an episode of abuse at least once -- but rather than putting a stop to it, she simply walked away.

I hope the one that reported is giving a tiny bit of leniency. Awful story.

In cases like these, eye for an eye appears to be the most appropriate punishment. Sadly these turds will never fully understand the terror they put an innocent child through. I hope that the most severe possible sentence will be passed upon this sick family. Any misfortunes that may befall them within prison are probably still well deserved.

What a typically stupid fucking comment.  I'm not a religious guy, but I hate bigotry and you are one of the biggest bigots on this board, stinky.

@fishingblues ... figures a sick fucking pervert like you who displays child porn for an avatar would come running to defend these child molesters.

Given that you see child porn in an innocent picture of a child, I'm wondering if you are not one of them.  You sick, twisted, perverted piece of shit.
