HOUSTON, Texas – Prosecutors say a Houston man sexually abused his ex-girlfriend’s young daughter over a four-year period.
Alexander Jackson, 50, is charged with indecency with a child.
According to court documents, the girl told police Jackson started abusing her in January 2006 when she was seven.
The girl is now 13.
Officials say Jackson would “reward” the girl for doing her chores by taking her to his apartment. He would have her put on her mother’s stripper costumes and perform lap dances for him.
According to court documents, Jackson would touch the girl under her clothing. He would also give her a white pill and have her lie in his bed. She told police she would fall asleep and wake up the next morning in pain. The victim told police her “vagina would burn and her body would hurt all over.”
The victim told police Jackson would tell her to get in the shower and wash off.
The girl said Jackson would tell her not to show anyone her breasts because they were sometimes bruised.
Officials say there were more than 20 incidents of this abuse, which occurred from January 2006 to February 2010. The girl did not tell anyone about the sexual abuse because Jackson said he would kill her and her five siblings. The girl says she was the only one of her siblings being abused.
The girl was placed in foster care in 2011.
She reported the sexual abuse to adults in April 2012. The victim said she was having nightmares leading up to reporting the abuse.
