Gastonia, NC– It reportedly happened on a fairly regular basis for about 3 months… Jessica Pack, 31, and her 23-year-old boyfriend, Jackie Nanney, would shoot at her three children with a BB gun. It wasn’t necessarily a form of punishment, it was mainly for shits and giggles. Hey, asshats, really… get a new hobby.
The children, ages 4, 5, and 7, were apparently shot at for sport. In the bathtub, riding their bikes, playing in the yard, etc. Hey, they were fair game. At one point, Nanney had the 7-year-old trapped behind a door and then shot at him through the crack. The BB’s left welts and bruises and occasionally, the BB’s would draw blood.
When the pair made their first appearance in court on Wednesday, Pack told the court she did shoot the 4-year-old, and that she allowed Nanney to shoot all three of the children. But Nanney says, ‘I don’t shoot no children! I shoot cans and stuff.’
Nanney cried to judge, begging for a lower bail. ‘I’m asking for a little mercy. I know these things sound bad. I know it sounds real bad, because it sounds bad to me, but I’m not that type of person, your honor,’ he said. The judge said, ‘Pppbbbttthhhtttt!’ and raised Nanney’s bond to $400,000. Pack’s bail was set at $200,000.
Nanney was charged with six counts of assault with a deadly weapon, five counts of intentional child abuse causing serious bodily injury, one count of assault on a child under 12, and one count of assault with a deadly weapon. Pack is being charged with five counts of misdeamenor child abuse, one count of intentional child abuse causing serious bodily injury, one count of assault on a child under 12, and one count of assault with a deadly weapon. Both are being held in Gaston County Jail and will make another court appearance on January 27.
The children have all been placed in the care of their grandmother.
