A disturbing tale of meth and child sexual assault is emerging in the city of Vernal, Utah. It was in that city that four men have been accused of gang-raping a 9-year-old girl while her mother smoked meth. The unidentified mother took the girl to the house of a friend she had met while in jail together. The two women went to the garage to smoke meth while the 9-year-old was asleep on the couch. When the women returned, the little girl was awake with her clothes in disarray, seemed upset  and she told her mother she wanted to go home.

The next day the girl was still upset and told her mother that four men in the house had taken her into the bedroom where they took turns raping and sodomizing her. The mother then called police who responded to the home and the little girl was able to pick out one of the attackers in a photograph. Police soon arrested Larson James RonDeau, 36, who was in the home where the attack occurred. Rondeau stated he was at house during the attack, however he denied any involvement in the incident. He further stated that the other three men accused could have been involved or responsible for the assault.

The other three men accused of the rape were arrested March 31 and April 1. They are identified as 20-year-old Josiah RonDeau, 29-year-old Jerry Flatlip, and 26-year-old Randall Flatlip. All four men face felony charges for rape of a child and one count of sodomy of a child. The four accused are being held without bond at the Uintah County Jail.

When police searched the house, they recovered items that included bloodstained bedding, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. The victim of the attack was removed from the custody of her mother and placed in state care.

    Death for these bastards

      I agree! But first they all get the same treatment that they gave to that poor little girl at least 10 times over. Also the mom needs to be charged.

        I am wondering if they are in the country illegally. Now that would tell all….

          Really? You must not get out much. These losers are undoubtedly natives.
          One of US’s biggest indian reservations is outside Vernal.

            I see. Thought the last names were native Indian. I hear Indian reservations are a social disaster.

            What does their ethnicity or nationality have to do with this. They are just sick people who need to be charged with their crimes. They don’t represent an entire tribe. They represent drug addicts regardless of RACE. This is what drug addicts do, it happens in many different settings. This is not a poor epidemic, abuse against children is a serious problem in the USA.

      “here illegally” would make better sense.

    Who are we to insult their quaint and ancient culture. I blame white privilege. Give these freedom fighters a medal.

      A medal for raping a child?! Really?! You are just as sick of a fuck as they are.

    Poor baby..wish I had the money to raise all kids who do not have a good home or are loved and cared for like they should be

    Mom should b held accountable too

  7. Ms M on April 5, 2016 at 3:02 pm

    This is hell on Earth! Poor child…I sometimes wish people could be vetted before being allowed to have children. Look at all the childless couples who would do almost anything to have a child to care for with all their heart – not brutalise them, ruin their childhood and leave them trusting no one.

    I have a 9yr old and I cannot imagine the agony, pain, and internal injuries that child received. I cannot imagine!!! They might as well have murdered her!

    Mom needs to be hung with a pair of shoe laces and shot dead!
