The Helena woman charged with delivering children to a convicted rapist was taken into custody Thursday night after failing to appear for a court hearing earlier that day.
Kimberly Elvera Feigert, 30, was arrested on a warrant issued by Judge Kathy Seeley, after the judge said in court that Feigert's failure to show up was "ridiculous."
According to the Helena Police Department, officers responded to a Helena home with information that Feigert was inside. Two women told the officers Feigert was not there and allowed them to search the house, where they found Feigert.
The county attorney is now considering charges of obstruction of justice against the two women who allegedly tried to hide Feigert from police.
Feigert was arrested in January 2017 after allegedly bringing a young girl to the Helena building where convicted rapist Andrew Douglas Paige was receiving sex offender treatment, knowing he would rape the girl in a bathroom. The allegations came to light after investigators found photos of the child in the bathroom on Paige's phone, court documents state.
Court documents state Paige and Feigert talked about the alleged molestation in recorded phone calls he made from jail, and she said the girl "would not tell." Feigert was later accused of taking and distributing sexual photographs of a girl under age 10.
She is being charged with multiple counts of accountability to sexual intercourse without consent and sexual abuse of children.
