Indiana mom confesses to ‘selling’ her young children to pervert in exchange for sex

Getting “the urge” or “itch” is understandable. It is a natural part of the human condition. What one is willing to do to scratch that itch is another matter.

For a Gary, Ind., woman, renting out her own infant child and toddler to a pedophile was not too great a price for her sexual gratification. That is what Natisha Hillard, 25, pleaded guilty last week to having done. In fact, it felt so good that she agreed to swapping out her babies for fondling and photographing a total of eight times.

Hillard was charged in a U.S. District Court with one count of selling a child for sex and two counts of allowing a child to take part in child pornography, according to Fox 32 News in Chicago (h/t The Other McCain).

Hillard admitted under questioning by her attorney, Visvaldis Kupsis, that she met Christopher M. Bour through a dating service in 2011 and that they agreed to meet at her place. That was when Bour started asking her about two children she had access to, both girls, who were 4 months and 3 years old at the time.

The crimes lasted from September 2011 until February 2013, when an acquaintance of Bour alerted the FBI that he had been asking her to take part.

She agreed with statements by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jill Koster that she can be seen on images found on Bour’s computer showing him sexually touching the child with Hillard in the background.

She also let Bour take sexual pictures of the older child at least once, Koster said.

Koster said that Hillard told law enforcement after she was arrested that she agreed to sell the children to Bour because she needed money and that Bour paid her extra for the last encounter to be alone with child.

As to whether Bour published the pornographic pictures of her children, Hillard can’t say. “He didn’t tell me what he was going to do with them,” she told the judge.

Hillard is being held without bond. She faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 30 years to life on the count of selling a child. Bour, who is also being held without bond, has pleaded not guilty to charges brought against him.
