A 58-year Missoula man is in Lewis and Clark County jail, charged with a felony sex offense against a child.

Stanley Leisle moved to Missoula from California in 2010, according to a Justice Court affidavit filed by a sheriff's deputy.

The offense occurred multiple times between 2010 and this month, according to the report.

He was arrested Tuesday in Missoula on a Lewis and Clark County warrant and transported to Helena on Thursday, Sheriff Leo Dutton said.

Leisle said in a court appearance by video that he had a spotless criminal record.

He remains in jail with bail at $100,000.

    1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

    2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

    3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

    4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

    5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

    6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

    7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

    8. Your comment is in really poor taste.

    9. Don't write a novel. If your comment is longer than the article you're commenting on, you might want to cut it down a bit. Lengthy comments will likely be removed.
