Mother ‘plotted to let paedophile rape her seven-year-old daughter’ Richard Hartley-Parkinson Metro.co.uk 14 Dec 2016
A convicted child rapist was set to appear in Yellowstone County Justice Court on Tuesday for new charges related to the rape of a teenage girl.
Robert Leeroy Fortman Jr., 47, is charged with sexual intercourse without consent, sexual assault, and failure to register as a sexual offender, all felony charges.
Fortman was living in the same trailer as 15-year-old girl and two women when he began preying on the girl.
The girl told investigators that Fortman sexually abused her about 25 times between September and November of this year.
Fortman fled the state once the investigation commenced and was recently apprehended in Alabama and returned to Montana.
The investigation began in November after the girl disclosed the abuse to her mother.
The girl reported that Fortman first began touching her in inappropriate ways that he made to seem like playfulness.
Eventually, the abuse escalated to more violent sexual attacks.
The girl reported that when she was alone with Fortman, he would rape her and force her to perform oral sex on him.
Fortman told the girl that he loved her and made her erase text messages from him, according to court documents.
He also told the girl that if she disclosed the abuse, she and her mother would no longer have a place to live.
Fortman was convicted in Wyoming in 2000 for a sexual offense in 1999 related to the abuse of a minor.
When the Montana case was filed in November, Fortman was not in the state.
He was booked into the Yellowstone County jail on Tuesday on a $200,000 warrant.
