An 18-year-old Helena man is facing a felony charge for allegedly having sex with a 13-year-old girl.
Cody James Thompson was arrested Thursday after the girl told staff at a psychiatric inpatient center that she had sex with him multiple times, according to court documents. The girl said she never told Thompson she didn’t want to have sex, the documents say.
Under Montana law, individuals younger than 16 are not able to consent to sexual intercourse.
The girl said she told Thompson she was 16, court documents say. Thompson told a detective she told him she was 17.
