Onision is a YouTuber who is popular for being controversial. That’s mainly because of his child predatory behavior that has been going for years. Onision’s problematic behavior has been exposed by the victims themselves and many popular YouTubers such as Blaire White. Recently, Chris Hansen from To Catch a Predator, who now has a YouTube channel of the same name, revealed that the FBI is investigating the actions of YouTuber Onision (Gregory Jackson).
History of Allegations against Onision
The controversial nature of the YouTuber first came into the public light when Vidcon banned him in 2012. The ban came after he made a statement about his ex-girlfriend which was highly problematic.
He stated that his ex-girlfriend ‘had sex with more than 20 people’ which meant that she’s not capable of being raped.

Child Grooming Allegations Against Onision and Partner Kai
Child grooming is when you befriend a child and slowly get them comfortable enough to a point where you can sexually exploit them. There have been multiple stories of child grooming like Shiloh’s where Onision and his partner Kai (formerly known as Lainey) befriended young girls and then ended up emotionally manipulating them. The emotional manipulation often resulted in them eventually having an intimate relationship with Onision and Kai when they turned 18. The disturbing fact is that Onision’s partner Kai was originally a minor as well when the two started dating.
Sarah | A Victim of Child Grooming
Later on, Sarah reveals that she was being groomed by the couple because just 4 days after she turned 18, she started to engage in sexual relations with Onision and Kai. Onision even forced Sarah to make a video to clear out his and Kai’s name. Now, Sarah stands firm with her allegation.
Billie | Another Victim of Manipulation
This is similar to other cases as well where girls have been groomed. One, in particular, is Billie who came on the Chris Hansen show as well. Billie stated she was more interested in Kai but Onision pressurized her and Kai to kiss in front of them. Though Billie was 18 at the time, she ended up having a three-way sexual relationship with Gregory and Kai. This three-way relationship happened both ‘naturally’ and from Gregory insisting it on. Billie also shares that her time with Sarah overlapped. As per her, they both would often end up doing all the house chores like babysitting their kids and cooking food. They did all this without getting paid.
Chris Hansen Is Getting the FBI Involved With Onision and Kai
Can Onision and Kai Go To Jail?
Now, Onision (Gregory Jackson) and Kai were careful. They did not engage in any sexual acts with their victims unless they were in a state where it was legal for them to do so or until the victim turned 18. Though, Hansen shared that sharing sexually explicit pictures with a minor who is underage is actually a federal crime that can get you up to 10 years in prison. This is, in fact, true.
The Department of Justice of the United States of America states:
Notably, the legal definition of sexually explicit conduct does not require that an image depict a child engaging in sexual activity. A picture of a naked child may constitute illegal child pornography if it is sufficiently sexually suggestive. Additionally, the age of consent for sexual activity in a given state is irrelevant; any depiction of a minor under 18 years of age engaging in sexually explicit conduct is illegal.
