NEWARK, NJ - April 30, 2013 (WPVI) -- An Army major and his wife disciplined their three foster children over a span of several years by withholding food and water and assaulting them severely enough to cause broken bones, a federal indictment released Tuesday charged.

John and Carolyn Jackson of Mount Holly made an initial court appearance and were detained Tuesday pending a bail hearing Thursday. They face 17 counts including endangerment, assault and conspiracy. John Jackson surrendered after his wife was arrested at their home, federal officials said.

The U.S. attorney's office has jurisdiction because the alleged crimes occurred when the couple lived at Picatinny Arsenal, a military installation about 35 miles west of New York City.

Peter Rowland, a spokesman for the arsenal said the Jacksons lived there from 2007 to 2012. He said the arsenal would not comment on the case because it is a pending legal matter.

"We have cooperated fully with investigators to date and we will continue to do so," Rowland said.

It wasn't immediately known if the Jacksons had retained an attorney.

According to the indictment, the Jacksons had three children of their own and fostered three other children they eventually adopted. One of the foster children, referred to by the initials "J.J.-2," died in 2008. The Jacksons weren't charged directly with the child's death but are charged with assaulting the child and failing to seek prompt medical care.

Two of the foster children were forced to eat red pepper flakes and drink hot sauce as punishment and two suffered fractured bones from assaults by the Jacksons, the indictment alleges.

The couple employed, "disciplinary and child-rearing techniques that were neglectful and cruel," the indictment charges. Also among the accusations are that the Jacksons misled Army and medical authorities in Oklahoma, Indiana and New Jersey about the nature and causes of the children's injuries.

The alleged abuse was directed at the foster children, according to the indictment. The Jacksons' biological children allegedly were instructed to monitor the foster children and told that the disciplinary measures were meant to train the foster children to behave.

The Jacksons also allegedly forbade their biological children from telling others about the discipline and beat one child with a belt after discovering the child had told a family friend.

The Jackson children are in the custody of New Jersey's Department of Children and Families, the U.S. attorney's office said. A spokeswoman for the department didn't immediately return a message seeking comment Tuesday.

Sickening, isn't it? Life isn't fair, and I know that sucks as a reason.

I feel for all the women who have tried for years to have babies, but, are unable, then I hear stories like these

NEWARK, NJ - May 2, 2013 (WPVI) -- An Army major and his wife accused in New Jersey of abusing their three foster children are free on $250,000 bail each.

They arrived back at their townhouse just before 6:00 p.m. and were surrounded by cameras and reporters.

"No comment," John Jackson told reporters before entering his home.

John and Carolyn Jackson will be confined to their house here in Mount Holly, that is just one of many restrictions a federal judge imposed when he released them.

The judge ordered them to be fitted with electronic ankle bracelets and on Thursday night, two officers arrived at the home to do just that.

The court also ordered that they have no direct or indirect contact with children.

The Jacksons' lawyers had nothing to say as they left federal court in Newark earlier in the day.

In court, they argued the couple should be freed on bail because they're not likely to flee and are not a risk to the community.

Judge Mark Falk countered that they're clearly a risk to their children.

John and Carolyn Jackson were arrested Tuesday on a 17 count indictment charging them with horrific acts of child abuse.

The Jacksons have three biological children and three adopted foster children.

A grand jury found the Jacksons starved the foster children and subjected them to harsh discipline that resulted in broken bones.

They also allegedly force fed them hot peppers and large amounts of salt while refusing to let them drink water.

The grand jury says one child suffered life threatening dehydration.

The alleged abuse happened over a five year period until the state removed the children from the Jackson home in 2010.

Since then, the government says the Jacksons have violated the restrictions imposed by family court, including unsupervised visits and sleepovers.

One of the foster children died at the age of two in 2008.

The government says the child had also been abused, but at the time, state investigators ruled the death was not caused by abuse.

Judge Falk today appointed third party custodians for the children and ordered the Jacksons to have no direct or indirect contact with them while they're free on bail.

The Jacksons had been fighting the state trying to get their children back over the past three years. Now, they're facing criminal charges that could send them to jail for a long time.

This is a federal case because John Jackson is a Major in the Army and the abuse allegedly happened on a military base in North Jersey.

Re: *UPDATE* Couple Who Abused Natural & Foster Children Out of Jail

Wow. These kids were failed by a lot of people. What took so long to bring charges? And when did the kids actually get taken away from these people?

Re: *UPDATE* Couple Who Abused Natural & Foster Children Out of Jail

2010 is when they were taken away. For some unknown reason, they have been trying to get them back.

I guess punching bags are too expensive!

I'm guessing they will have to exhume the dead baby, assuming he or she was not cremated.

Sick fucks! I don't know why they suddenly were charged.

I think they are a flight risk and should be jailed immediately!
