Great Falls teen, Underdahl, in court on more rape charges

GREAT FALLS - Kristian Underdahl was back in court on Friday facing two more charges of rape against underage girls.

Underdahl, 19, now faces a total of 16 sexual assault charges over the last two years, all involving girls between 12 and 14 years of age.

The latest cases date back to December 2012.

Court documents say that following a game of "truth or dare," Underdahl forced a 12-year-old girl to perform oral sex.

Days later, he was charged on another count of sexual intercourse without consent which allegedly occurred in the back of a pickup truck.

His last four counts occurred within 90 days of his previous sentencing.

During Friday's court session, Judge Greg Pinski said the likelihood of Underdahl re-offending appears to be great, "the likes of which this community has never seen."

Law enforcement witnesses said they have never seen a case with as many victims as this one.

Underdahl's trial is scheduled for January.
