GREAT FALLS — A convicted sex offender is jailed in Great Falls on $1 million bail after being charged with videotaping himself engaging in sexual conduct with children.

Jason Charles Shouse is charged with 12 counts of sexual abuse of children related to pornography found on his cellphone, three counts of rape, one count of sexual assault along with tampering with evidence and witnesses.

Shouse, who is 36, made an initial appearance before District Judge Dirk Sandefur on Monday.

Court records say a woman reported finding the video on his cellphone and took a memory card to detectives. Prosecutors say the memory card had 264 images and 18 videos of child pornography.
