Four Utah men are accused of raping a 9-year-old girl on Easter Sunday while her mom allegedly smoked methamphetamine with a fellow ex-con nearby, FOX13 reported.
Larson James RonDeau, 36, Josiah RonDeau, 20, Jerry Flatlip, 29, and Randall Flatlip, 26, have been booked on one count each of rape of a child and sodomy of a child. It’s unclear if any of the men are related.
“I want hard-core punishment for what they have done to this child, because that shouldn’t happen to anybody,” the girl’s grandmother told FOX13.
The alleged incident occurred while the girl’s mother was hanging out with a friend she met while incarcerated. At one point the two went to a garage, allegedly to smoke methamphetamine, while the girl slept on a couch. It was at that point the four men allegedly brought the girl to a bedroom in the house and took turns raping and sodomizing her.
While one of the men was raping her, the girl later told police, he told her he would kill her if she reported the incident.
When the mother returned from the garage, she reportedly found her daughter upset and with her clothes disheveled. Later she told her mom about the alleged rape.
The girl identified one of the men from a photo, FOX13 reported, and, after executing a search warrant, authorities found bloodstained bedding and other evidence that corroborated the girl’s account.
The girl has been taken into state custody to make sure she “is taken care of,” Uintah County Sheriff’s Office Corporal Brian Fletcher told FOX13.
“My granddaughter doesn’t deserve to go through this,” the girl’s grandmother said. “I’m very, very disgusted with people like that.”
