A 40-year-old Great Falls man is charged with raping an 8-year-old girl while the girl's mother faces an endangerment charge for allowing the man to continue to live at their house.
Anthony Joseph Dubois was arrested on Jan. 3 and made an initial District Court appearance Monday on a charge of felony sexual intercourse without consent. The girl told investigators that Dubois assaulted her in November.
The girl's mother is charged with criminal child endangerment. Cascade County prosecutors say she told the girl not to report the assault. The Associated Press is withholding the name of the mother to avoid identifying the girl. The woman also made an initial appearance. Neither have entered pleas and both remained jailed Tuesday.
The assault was reported while the girl was staying with an out-of-town relative.
