Vinemont woman charged with felony child abuse

Cullman County Sheriff’s Office investigators have charged a 32-year-old woman with aggravated child abuse.

Charity Nicole Jackson, of Vinemont, was arrested late last week.

The alleged victim, who is under the age of 12, was taken to an out-of-town hospital where signs of child abuse were discovered by the attending physician.  Physicians noticed that the victim was malnourished, had bruises, cuts on her head and ears as well as other wounds.

Due to the graphic nature of the crime and the crime involving a minor child, a statement from the sheriff’s office said only limited details could be released concerning the child’s injuries.

“It breaks my heart to see a child being harmed but it also infuriates me at the same time,” said Sheriff Matt Gentry.  “I would also like to thank our investigators and those who assisted them in this case.”

CCSO investigators worked in cooperation with the Department of Human Resources and the Child Advocacy Center.

Jackson is being held in the Cullman County Detention Center with a $30,000 cash bond.
