OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An Omaha woman faces a slew of charges after police say she sexually assaulted much younger girls on a dance team of which they were all members.
Prosecutors have charged Brittianee Bates, 23, with three counts of first-degree sexual assault, three counts of third-degree sexual assault of a child and two counts of intentional child abuse, the Omaha World-Herald reported.
Bates is accused of sexually assaulting three girls who were on the same drill team as Bates and a fourth girl who went to a day care where Bates worked. Court records say the abuse dates back to 2015 and that the victims ranged in age from 7 to 12.
Police said the girls told investigators that over the course of several years, Bates fondled them, performed oral sex on them and forced them to perform oral sex on her and each other.
Bates is being held on $500,000 bail.
