GREAT FALLS - Colin Michael Kees, charged with sexual abuse of children after allegedly kissing and fondling a 13-year old girl in Great Falls, made his initial appearance in court on Tuesday afternoon.
Kees, 23, reportedly had been exchanging sexually explicit text messages and Facebook messages with the girl.
Court documents state that Kees told the girl that he was 29 years old, and she told him that she was 13 years old.
The events led to the two meeting in a parking lot on 11th Avenue South on August 23rd, where he brought the girl pizza and then reportedly kissed and fondled the girl.
When interviewed by police several days later, Kees admitted "sexting" the girl and said that he knew that she was 13 or 14 years old.
He also reportedly admitted to sending her a picture of his genitals.
Kees also admitted to having child pornography on his computer.
Bond for Kees was set at $75,000.
