Randall Flatlip Facing New Charges Related to Child Pornography

One of the men charged with the rape of a 9-year-old Uintah County girl has new charges filed against him related to child pornography. 26-year-old Randall Flatlip has 74 new charges of 2nd Degree Felony Sexual Exploitation of a Minor filed against him on August 30th. According to the probable cause statement, the Vernal City Police Detective began his review of materials from the FBI on August 18th concerning potential child pornography. The investigation showed that all email accounts belonged to and were being accessed by Randall Flatlip. It was found that the incidents occurred between February and March of this year within Uintah County. Court documents do not indicate that these new charges are related to the charges of 1st Degree Felony Rape and Sodomy on a child that Flatlip faces connected to the March 27th incident. Flatlip pleaded Not Guilty on both of those charges. He remains in Uintah County Jail and is scheduled to be in 8th District Court on both cases today.
