A Uintah County Woman Arrested For Child Abuse


| Naples, Ut. | June 8th, 2024 |

Deputy Roth responded to a residence in Uintah County on a report of a juvenile who had been choked by her mother.

When the deputy arrived and spoke with 35-year-old Keisha Jan Bethers, the mother of the juvenile, Keisha explained that her daughter had returned home, and she confronted her about some of her vapes that had gone missing.

An argument began, and Keisha stated that she followed her daughter to her bedroom, continuing to confront her about the missing vapes. While in the bedroom, the daughter hit Keisha in the face. Keisha admitted to pulling her daughter to the floor, holding her daughter's arms across her chest, and applying pressure to her daughter's throat with her forearm to stop her daughter from hitting her.

While Deputy Roth spoke with Keisha, he could smell the odor of alcohol coming from her person. When asked if she had consumed any alcohol, she admitted to having several mixed drinks.

While speaking with the juvenile, she stated while in the bedroom, her mother advanced toward her, trying to grab her and push her onto the bed. The juvenile stated that she was afraid and hit her mom. She described her mom pulling her to the ground and then landing on her stomach. She said that her mom wrapped her arm around her neck and began to squeeze to the point that she felt like she couldn't breathe.

The juvenile was able to tell Siri on her iPhone to call 911. While she was telling dispatch that her mother was attacking her, she stated that her mom let go of her neck and attempted to put her hands over her daughter's mouth to prevent her from requesting help.

Keisha was arrested and transported to the Uintah County Jail. Keisha Bethers may post bail in the amount of $4,000.00.
