BUTTE, Mont. -

A 23-year-old Butte man is accused of having sex with an underage girl. Nicholas Rykiel faces one county of sexual intercourse without consent.

According to police the girl was under the age of 16.

The judge set bond at $100,000 dollars.

"We put together a case from the night before and our officers interviewed him and collected evidence. The evidence was sent to the crime lab and we felt we had enough to charge the suspect with sexual intercourse without consent," said Undersheriff George Skuletich.
