Prosecutors say Billman posted an ad on Craig’s List as a babysitter for hire. A woman answered the ad and placed her daughter in the care of Billman and his girlfriend.

Billman, in his plea deal, acknowledged molesting the 7-year-old girl in a hotel and in a vehicle.

Billman, who was arrested in October, remains in custody pending sentencing.
