An Oklahoma mother faces serious charges after authorities say she sexually abused her children in the presence of other adults.
Natalie Lynn Webb, 30, was arrested in Elk City, Okla., and charged with sexual abuse of children under 12, and child neglect. Police said she abused three of her children from December 2012 to March 2013.
Webb’s 9-year-old son told investigators that his 8-year-old brother and two 3-year-old sisters were repeatedly raped by their mother as other men and women looked on, according to the document. The boy told police that he saw his sisters resist as their mother dragged them into a room, then he could hear his sisters screaming and crying. Police also wrote that the boy told them he saw his mother using a foreign object in the abuse and that people may have paid his mother to watch the abuse.
One of Webb’s 3-year-old daughters corroborated her brother’s interview, telling investigators that it felt “nasty” when she was being molested, according to the affidavit. The 9-year-old said he also saw his brother being abused, but was able to avoid being sexually abused himself by running and hiding in a dumpster. In interviews with police, Webb denied sexually molesting her children.
Webb admitted to authorities that she sometimes traded her food stamps for meth. During past interviews included in the affidavit, she demanded to take a polygraph test to prove that she had not sexually molested her children. In late November, Webb told officer Steve Bonds, of the Beckham County Sheriff’s Office, that she did not want to talk with the polygraph examiner after the examiner told her she failed the test.
Webb is due in Beckham County Court Jan. 6 for a preliminary hearing, and is being held on a $2 million bond. Her four children now live with their grandparents.
A Dec. 18 police affidavit, obtained by The Huffington Post, contains accounts of repeated rapes, beatings and deplorable living conditions through interviews with Webb and her children.
