Accused child rapist pleads to lesser counts as part of deal


A Helena man accused of raping underage girls and having large amounts of child pornography in his possession admitted to two lesser counts of sexual abuse of children Friday in Helena district court.

Andrew Douglas Paige, 37, is facing 25 years to life in the Montana State Prison as a result of his plea. He entered the plea as part of an open deal, however, which means the defense attorney and prosecutor will debate his exact punishment within those parameters. 

Kim Feigert, who brought Paige his victims, will face trial in June of this year.

County Attorney Leo Gallagher said Paige is expected to “cooperate with the prosecution against Ms. Feigert" as part of his plea deal. 

Paige will now undergo a psychosexual evaluation and a presentence investigation at the Montana State Prison.
