An Indiana mother confessed this week to selling her baby for sex eight times.

Natisha Hillard, 25, pleaded guilty to charges of selling a child for sex and allowing a child to take part in child pornography, the Post-Tribune reported. FBI officials said the abuse took place when the child was between 4 and 18 months old, according to WTSP.

The Gary woman was arrested in March, after a massage parlor owner told police that Hillard's alleged business partner, 39-year-old Christopher Bour, had shown her child porn videos and asked her to record her having sex with a child.

Bour also allegedly sent the massage parlor owner text messages in which he revealed his intentions to sexually abuse a child. One message read, "U wanna watch me play with a baby tomorrow a real one ;)".

Bour was arrested along with Hillard and charged with with producing child pornography and possessing child pornography. Investigators say they found images of Bour sexually touching a baby between 6 and 9 months old. The woman holding the baby in the photos was identified as Hillard.

Both Hillard and Bour pleaded guilty in June, though Hillard changed her story this week. She told the court she met Bour through a dating site in 2011 and admitted to being the woman in the images.

Hillard also admitted to selling her older child, who was 3 years old when the crimes began, to Bour for the purposes of taking sexual photos. Bour allegedly paid her extra in order to be alone with the child.

“He didn’t tell me what he was going to do with [the images],” she told law enforcement.

Hillard faces a minimum 30-year sentence.
