The Missoula County Attorney’s Office charged 14 criminal complaints this week, which is the same amount as last week and right around the weekly average. According to County Attorney Kirsten Pabst, two of those cases involved family violence.

“We charged an assault on a minor, and a partner or family member assault first offense,” Pabst said. “In that case, an adult male allegedly threatened and pushed his father. In the non-family violent category, we charged an aggravated assault. The defendant allegedly assaulted and held the victim underwater.”

Pabst said her office also charged five property crimes.

“The first was an exploitation of an older person, or incapacitated person, as well as forgery and theft,” Pabst said. “In that case, the victim was 76 years old and living with the defendant who was his adult son. When APF and the County Sheriff’s Department went to investigate, they found the victim’s living situation was pretty filthy. He was locked in a room without access to a bathroom. The defendant had allegedly purchased motorcycles and guitars as well.”

They also charged criminal trespass to vehicles involving a situation with the bus, a burglary, a forgery, and criminal mischief.

“In one of those, the defendant allegedly stole and cashed a check for almost $900,” Pabst said. “In another, it stemmed from a landlord and tenant eviction. In the drug category, we charged three new cases. One involved the possession of meth, one involved the possession of meth and heroin, and the third involved the sale of methamphetamine.”

Pabst said they also charged one individual with two counts of bail jumping. In that case, the defendant missed four of his final pre-trial conferences in other cases. You can listen to Pabst’s full report below.
