Couple Arrested For Child Sexual Abuse

Headland police have made two arrests in relation to a child sexual abuse case.

25-year-old Jason Allan Peters is accused of raping and sexually torturing a 10-year-old child.

Headland Police Chief Mark Jones said Peters was arrested on three counts of rape and one counts of sexual torture.

His wife 39-year-old Regina Jones is charged with aggravated child abuse for not telling police the abuse was happening.

Peters was arrested in Houston County in 2005 and charged with sexually abusing the same 10 year old girl. He's been out of jail, waiting to go to trial for two years.

Police say after Peters was arrested the first time, the court told Regina Jones it was her responsibility to keep peters away from the young girl.

Investigators say instead of doing that Regina Jones allowed him back into the family home against the court's order

The 10-year-old child was also living with two siblings when the abuse allegedly happened.

All of the children have now been turned over to the Department Of Human Resources until the case is resolved.

Jason peters is being held in the Henry County Jail on a 600-thousand dollar bond.

Bond for Regina Jones was set at 5-thousand dollars.

She has paid her bond and was released from the Henry County jail.
