A number of people should pay heavily for this…
Four men have been arrested and charged with gang raping a nine-year-old girl while her mother smoked methamphetamine in another room.
The assault is alleged to have happened on Easter Sunday at a house in Vernal, Utah.
The men, Randall and Jerry Flatlip, 29 and 26, and Josiah and Larson RonDeau, 20 and 36, have been arrested, the Uintah County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
The men were charged with first-degree felony rape of a child and first-degree sodomy and were being held in the Uintah County Jail, the statement added.
According to Fox13, the nine-year-old girl had been at the house with her mother and was sleeping on the sofa.
At that point the mother and a friend went into the garage to smoke drugs.
When the mother returned, she found her daughter upset, with her clothes in disarray, saying she wanted to go home.
The next day the girl told her mother that she had been taken into a bedroom and raped by the men in turn, with one saying he would kill her if she told anybody about it.
Police say she identified suspect Larson RonDeau and he was taken into custody.
According to a statement, he agreed to answer questions without an attorney present but denied any involvement.
Later police detained the three other suspects who each face one count of rape of a child and sodomy of a child as first-degree felonies.
During a search of home, officers found evidence relating to the alleged sexual assault, such as bloodstained bedding, as well as marijuana and drug paraphernalia at the home, reports Fox6Now.
Meanwhile the girl has been taken into the care of the state of Utah rather than remaining under the custody of her mother.
We will say a prayer for the little girl.
