One Man Held a Dog’s Head Under Water

The Missoula County Attorney’s Office filed 18 new criminal charges this week. According to prosecutor Kirsten Pabst, 11 cases involved some form of violence.

“Six of these cases involved interpersonal violence,” said Pabst. “We have charged with stalking, assaulting four partners or family members, and violating a protection order. There were three offenses that included violence not directed against a family member. Two of these were assault cases and one was an attack on a minor. We have been charged with cruelty to animals. The defendant was charged on three counts. There it is said that he held the head of a dog under water and that in the heat of over 90 degrees he also left two dogs in his vehicle with the windows slightly down. “

Pabst said her office also charged a defendant with child sexual abuse on two counts. This case involved an undercover operation with an FBI agent posing as a 13-year-old girl.

“We had a new criminal exposure, but there were four cases,” said Pabst. “In this case, the defendant was driving and seeing a car that he believed belonged to his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend. He is said to have intentionally driven his vehicle into the rear of the other vehicle twice. It turned out that the vehicle didn’t belong to his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend, just a family driving home from the fireworks. They had a baby and a small child who drove with them in the car. “

In the property crime category, there were two thefts, one burglary and one case of forgery.

“In the case of forgery, it is alleged that the defendant is alleged to have forged a bail amounting to $ 50,000,” said Pabst. “In one of the theft cases, the defendant allegedly misused the benefit payments intended for her underage daughter for her own use and withdrew more than $ 18,000 from that resource.”

Finally there were two new methamphetamine cases. One also dealt with allegations of escape and resistance to arrest.
