Helena man charged with rape of 15-year old girl

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

A Helena man is scheduled to go on trial in April for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 15-year old girl.

Justin Higgs, 32, pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to a felony count of sexual intercourse without consent.

Prosecutors allege that Higgs admitted to law enforcement officers that he had numerous sexual encounters with a female identified as “Jane Doe” earlier this year.

Higgs, who has two felonies on his record, asked Judge Mike Menahan to be released on his one recognizance in order to get medical care.

After Lewis & Clark County Attorney Leo Gallagher pointed out that Higgs is a persistent felony offender, the judge denied the request.

Higgs faces up to life in prison if convicted.
