DALLAS CO., AL (WSFA) -

A Dallas County man and woman are facing charges in a sexual abuse investigation.

Tyrone Lewis is charged with rape, sexual abuse and enticing a child for immoral purposes. The victim is an underage relative, according to the Dallas County Sheriff's Office.

Lewis' wife, Jessica Lewis, is charged with hindering prosecution. Investigators say the victim told Jessica Lewis about the abuse, and Jessica Lewis did nothing about it.

According to Dallas County Sheriff's Office officials, the abuse started three years ago when the child was 12.

The couple will be in court Tuesday afternoon.
