HARTFORD, ALABAMA: An Alabama grandmother and her former son-in-law have been arrested and charged on allegations they live-streamed him sexually assaulting his toddler daughter.

The Alabama State Board of Investigation and FBI raided the Hartford area residences of Lisa Williamson, 41, and her ex-son-in-law Steven Anthony Jackson, 19, on Wednesday and Thursday, May 6 and May 7, according to AL.com.

Williamson reportedly live-streamed Jackson assaulting his one-year-old daughter on a pornographic site. The video was reported by someone out of state to the FBI, who then contacted Alabama and Geneva County authorities.

The grandmother lived off Geneva County Road 14, several miles south of Hartford, while Jackson lived off Geneva County Road 41, north of Hartford. Several nearby residents who did not wish to appear on camera said it was one of the most atrocious acts they had heard of and they couldn't believe it happened in their neighborhood.

"We did find some things we needed to look at as evidence and that’s being analyzed in Montgomery," said Geneva County Sheriff Tony Helms. "We’re still early in the investigation."

Williamson is facing five felony charges, including disseminating obscene pornography, possession of child porn, and possession of pornography, in connection to the case. Jackson, on the other hand, is facing charges of first-degree sodomy and production of child pornography.

The grandmother and the teen are currently being held at Geneva County Jail on respective bonds of $2.5 million and $750,000, and additional arrests could yet be made in the case.

The Alabama Department of Human Resources, which has been involved in the case since the very beginning, has since taken the child into custody. An emergency hearing regarding that matter has already been held, and a judge ruled that the young girl would remain in state custody.

"The evil of this magnitude exists in the world, especially for those of us who have children and grandchildren and [know] how precious they are," Helms said about the case.

"We do everything we can to protect them, and in this case, where the persons who were supposed to be protecting them are the ones that are causing the problem," he continued. "This is some of the worst behavior you’ll find."

"It's awful. It’s hard to describe it any other way. A lot of evil does exist in this world. One of the things that bothers me is how many other cases there are like this out there just waiting on a tip from a good citizen to tell us. That’s the scary part."

The pair's arrest came just days after authorities in South Carolina arrested two men for streaming the sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl with "diminished mental capacity" on Facebook Live.

Tasheen A Walker, 20, Jonah D Fishburne, 18, and three other men grabbed the victim as she was walking to her grandmother's house in North Charleston, forced her into an abandoned house, and assaulted her in the basement.

The pair was charged with second-degree criminal sexual assault with a minor and are currently being held at the Charleston County Detention Center.
