Travis Hinther of Columbia Falls denied three felony charge of sexual abuse of children Thursday in Flathead County District Court. Court documents reveal Hinther was allegedly downloading child pornography. When confronted by a Flathead County sergeant, Hinther admitted he knew it was wrong and was trying to stop.
