Man charged with raping 13-year-old girl
A former Missoula man is jailed on $100,000 bail after being charged with raping a 13-year-old girl in August 2012.
40-year-old Damon G. Parsons made an initial appearance in Justice Court Monday on a charge of sexual intercourse without consent.
Court records say a representative from the Montana Child Abuse Hotline called the Missoula County sheriff's office to report a 13-year-old girl alleged Parsons had raped her.
Sheriff's Deputy Paige Pavalone says Parsons left Missoula in September 2012 before detectives could interview him.
He was arrested in Portland, Ore., in December.
