Doris Taylor, Perquimans County, NC (WTKR) — Six brothers and their parents have been charged after a girl says she was sexually abused since the age of four until she was 14-years-old.

She is now 16.

Police say the parents were charged in this case because they witnessed the abuse.

The brothers, who range in age from 18 to 27, were all homeschooled with the girl according to the Perquiman’s County sheriff. The family lived in a home on Chapanoke Road in Perquimans County.

Deputies tell NewsChannel 3 they’ve been investigating this case for over a year now.

They say one of the brothers came forward in 2012 after he confided in someone. Deputies then spoke with the girl and they say the parents would not allow her to talk. The family then moved to Colorado.

While in Colorado, the girl spoke with Child Protective Services about the alleged abuse.

The sheriff’s department went to Colorado to speak with her. This lasted about eight hours they say.

All six of the brothers are now being held on $150, 000 bond. They are awaiting an arraignment that has not been scheduled yet.

The parents have been released on $15,000 bond.

    If found guilty, that entire family, save the victim should be doused in gasoline and used as kindling to burn down that house of horrors.

      While a nasty case, you should read The Constitution. You might learn something. This is not mob rule.

    Wow, I don't even know what to say…this poor girl. One is bad enough but six of them for 10 years!!! I pray they never see the light of day again and I hope this girl finds the strength and the people to give her at least a little of her life, self-esteem and innocence back…I can't imagine will this will take her during her recovery – if that's even a possibility…Heaven help her!!!!
