A Lolo man, 57 year-old Danny Wayne Johnston pleaded not guilty to two counts of sexual intercourse without consent in the molestation of a six year-old child.

According to district court documents, Johnston allegedly molested the child on two occasions, once outside at night near his truck, and once inside his home.

Court documents state that Johnston told authorities the child initiated the sexual contact.

If found guilty, Johnston could receive a sentence of up to life in prison on each count.

Johnston was also on probation at the time of his arrest on a felony DUI conviction. His bail was continued at $200,000, and he remains in the Missoula county jail.
