DAVID R. BILLS

On Monday, July 10th, 2017, following a four-day trial, an eight-person jury from Utah County found David R. Bills, 67, guilty of ten (10) first degree felonies for Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a Child.

David R. Bills, a resident of Eagle Mountain, was charged with sexually abusing three young girls over the course of five years. All three victims were between the ages 6 and 8 when the abuse started. The children testified that Bills would typically start by tickling them, giving them hugs or having them sit on his lap, and would then move his hand down inside their shirts and beneath their underwear where he rubbed their breasts and/or genitals. When the young girls asked him to stop because they didn't like it, he would manipulate them by saying, "You don't like me anymore?" During the trial, all three child victims recounted the extensive sexual abuse they suffered at the hands of Bills. The jurors found that Bills was in a position of special trust and took advantage of that trust over a period of several years.

On September 5th, 2017, David R. Bills was sentenced to 30 years to life in the Utah State Prison.
