HELENA – An 18-year-old Helena man has been charged with sexual intercourse without consent.

Blake Riley McHugh’s bond was set at $40,000 Wednesday.

Court documents state a girl under the age of consent told investigators she and McHugh had sex on more than a dozen occasions. The incident allegedly occurred in February and March of 2019.

McHugh initially denied having sexual intercourse with the girl, but then admitted to it, according to court documents. Records also show he knew the girl was under the age of consent.

McHugh was previously charged with sexual intercourse without consent last month for allegedly raping an intoxicated woman on March 23.
