ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- A Florida couple is facing capitol sexual battery charges against young children.

Investigators said the victims spoke out after six month of abuse. "At the time of the crimes, the children were under the age of 12," said Commander Chuck Mulligan with the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office.

The victims eventually told leaders at an undisclosed school in Flagler County what was happening.
DCF was notified and St. Johns County investigators then swarmed the home of one of the suspects, arresting 27-year old William Clarence Dillow.

We knocked on the door but were told to leave. "I have nothing to say to you," said the man inside.

The home happens to be in a school zone, and neighbors said that children pass the house daily on their walk to school. Deputies won't say if it's where the alleged incidents occurred.
"We're just at the tip of this investigation. There's a lot of forensic examinations and whatnot that we're going to do on evidence that was taken today," said Mulligan.

The other suspect, Rhonda Wilkerson, is behind bars in Flagler County. We called the number she had listed and spoke with her mother. She said Wilkerson lived with her, and was dating Dillow until very recently.

She also said her daughter has never been arrested before. But the same can't be said about Dillow. He has a prior record in New jersey for aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

Action News has learned that two do the victims were young girls, ages 9 and 11. We're told they are now in state custody.

I was wondering the same thing, how are these little angels part of these monsters lives? How could it have gone on for 6 months and how could a 49 year old female allow this to happen even if her BF was in control of her? At some point wouldnt the human inside kick in and say "NO, Im not going to continue supporting the ruination of these innocent little babies"? Well I guess you would have to be human to do that... nasty scum

What, if any, is the relationship of these little girls and these 2? My heart aches for these precious little ones. Cannot imagine the depraved mind & motives of a woman that could harm little girls. Suppose she wanted to "impress" the loser guy by taking part in it. Prayers for the little ones.
