A 39-year-old adoptive mother in Georgia was arrested last week after police say she spent years torturing, caging, and abusing her 11-year-old son, who was found earlier this month running through the streets covered in scars after escaping the home by breaking through a wall and jumping out of a second-story window.

Chole Lyn Jackson-Jones was taken into custody last Thursday and charged with three counts each of cruelty to children and false imprisonment, as well as charges of aggravated assault, reckless conduct, battery, and contributing to the dependency of a minor, records reviewed by Law&Crime show.

According to a press release from the Newnan Police Department, officers at about 6:41 p.m. on July 5 responded to a call regarding an 11-year-old boy who was running on the street and appeared to be frightened when he was found by a couple of good Samaritans.

Upon arriving at the scene in the Bullsboro Crossing subdivision, first responders spoke with both the child and the good Samaritans who continued to wait with him. During their interactions, the detectives speaking with the child said they noticed a plethora of suspicious scars and markings on the child’s body that appeared to be “consistent with long-term abuse and neglect.”

The good Samaritans who called the police on the victim’s behalf reportedly told investigators that when they came across the victim, one of the first things he did was ask them for food.

Jackson-Jones was taken into custody on July 13 and the victim was placed in the custody of the Georgia Department of Family and Children’s Services.
