In a story that is stunning in its depravity, two South Carolina men are in jail after sexually assaulting an 11-year-old Conway girl repeatedly over the space of several years. Some of the details in the story as told by CBS affiliate WBTW are sketchy, such as why authorities were not alerted when the child reported the abuses to her grandmother in early September.

Whatever the explanation might be, the child is now pregnant. This was determined when she was taken to a hospital last Friday.

According to an Horry County police report, Kevin Maurice Jackson, 30, of Tabor City, forced the girl to have sexual intercourse since she was 8-years-old [sic]. According to J. Reuben Long Detention bookings, Jackson was arrested Friday morning. He’s charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor, 1st degree.

Damian Jackson, 20, was charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor 2nd degree after police said he also had sex with the girl while Kevin Jackson watched. He was arrested Thursday.

The relationship between the two men, if any, is not stated. Both men remain in jail.

One of the most sobering aspects of this story is that it has happened before. In 2011, Michael Lacy of St. Albans, W.V., was sentenced to 15 to 35 years in prison after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting and impregnating an 11-year-old girl.
