Kim Feigert, the Helena woman accused of delivering children to be molested by a convicted child rapist, had her bond raised from $50,000 to $100,000 by Judge Kathy Seeley Thursday afternoon.

Seeley originally wanted to set bail at $200,000 but came down to $100,000 after hearing from both lawyers. Seeley said she was worried that Feigert was a "flight risk" after her arrest last week for failing to appear for a pre-trial conference.

Feigert was hiding in a locked room at an acquaintance's home when police came to find her, according to testimony from Helena Police Department detective Randy Robinson. The two women who lived there were later charged with obstruction of justice.

Feigert was arrested in January 2017 after allegedly bringing a young girl to the Helena building where convicted rapist Andrew Douglas Paige was receiving sex offender treatment, knowing he would rape the girl in a bathroom. The allegations came to light after investigators found photos of the child in the bathroom on Paige's phone, court documents state.

The documents say Paige and Feigert talked about the alleged molestation in recorded phone calls he made from jail, and she said the girl "would not tell." Feigert was later accused of taking and distributing sexual photographs of a girl under age 10.

She is being charged with multiple counts of accountability to sexual intercourse without consent and sexual abuse of children.

A new trial date was set for Oct. 22.
