The mother of the girl raped by 4 men last spring changed her plea to guilty to a lesser child abuse charge last week in 8th District Court. 32-year-old Natasha Alissa Billsie pleaded guilty to Class A Misdemeanor Child Abuse and was given credit for 87 days served in the Uintah County Jail. Billsie was released on probation and required to complete a drug treatment program. According to court documents, the original Felony Child Abuse charge was filed against Billsie on August 23rd for the event that took place on March 26th. According to court documents, the young girl was sleeping on the couch of a Uintah County residence while her mother, Natasha Billsie, went into the garage of the home and was smoking methamphetamine. During that time, the child was taken into another room in the home where she told investigators she was raped by multiple men. A review hearing is scheduled for Billsie to appear again in 8th District Court on January 10th.
