Helena man accused of raping underage girl
A 20-year-old man is accused of raping an underage girl.
William Tell Borske is charged with felony counts of sexual intercourse without consent and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence.
On April 1, a Helena police officer investigated a report of a missing minor girl, and on April 2, another Helena officer learned where the girl was. The second officer responded and located the girl, who told him she had sex with Borske earlier that night.
The victim told the officer she was wearing clothing that belonged to Borske and his girlfriend, and that her clothes were in the washing machine. The officer then spoke with Borske, who said he had sex with the girl. Borske then said he had washed the clothes because she had vomited, which the victim denied.
Borske was arrested and taken into custody at the Lewis and Clark County Detention Center.
All charged are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
