Comments Off on Frenchtown man charged with sexually assaulting 14-year-old girl


Nyibe Nguyen, 23, appeared in Missoula court on Wednesday charged with felony sexual intercourse without consent after an incident that allegedly occurred Feb. 20 in Frenchtown.

Missoula County Assistant District Attorney Brandon Zeak asked Judge Alex Beal for $100,000 bail due to the seriousness of the sexual assault charge and the age of the alleged victim.

“The allegations set out in the charging documents are extremely concerning to the state,” Zeak said. “The State believes that the defendant is a danger to the community given allegations that the defendant perpetrated an assault on a 14-year-old family member despite multiple attempts by the victim before and during the assault to prevent the accused from sexually assaulting her.”

Zeak went on to say that the defendant tried to coerce the alleged victim into not reporting the assault.

“The defendant then tried to coerce the victim into hiding what he had done by telling him to delete the messages he had sent him in which he apologized for what he had done, and telling him not to report it to law enforcement,” he added. noted. “Because of the defendant’s actions, the state’s position is that the defendant frankly invaded the victim’s bodily autonomy, after which he psychologically pressured her to cover up these crimes.”

Zeak asked Judge Beal to impose a high bail on the defendant.

“Your Honor, the State believes that a bond is absolutely necessary to address the concerns and, based on the facts presented in this case, a bond in the amount of $100,000 is appropriate,” he said. .

Judge Beal set bail at $100,000 and told the defendant that if he was able to post bail, he would only be released on pre-trial supervision, require alcohol supervision and be equipped with a GPS monitor to ensure he stays at least 1,500 feet away from the alleged victim or any of the potential witnesses in the case.

His next court appearance is March 7 in Missoula District Court.
