Montana Woman Gets Century In Prison After Admitting To Delivering Young Girl To Convicted Rapist
Kimberly Feigert, 32, will also be labeled a tier one sex offender.
A Montana woman who admitted she delivered a young girl to a convicted rapist, knowing the victim would be sexually assaulted, has been sentenced to 100 years in prison.
Kimberly Feigert, 32, was sentenced Tuesday in Helena, Montana, the Helena Independent Record reported. District Court Judge Kathy Seeley also ruled that Feigert would not be eligible for parole for the first 25 years of her sentence and that she would be labeled a tier-one sex offender.
Feigert must also complete most of her sex offender treatment program before being eligible for release, the Associated Press reported.
Earlier this year, Feigert pleaded guilty to one felony count of accountability to sexual intercourse without consent in exchange for the court dismissing two other felony counts, according to previous reporting from the Independent Record.
Parole officer Lloyd Dopp, who testified during Tuesday's sentencing hearing, told the court he believes Feigert has not taken full responsibility for her actions, according to the Independent Record.
In 2017, Feigert was taken into custody after bringing a young girl to the building where convicted rapist Andrew Douglas Paige was receiving sex offender treatment. Authorities said Feigert did this knowing Paige would rape the girl in a bathroom.
Feigert's actions came to light after investigators found photos of the child in the bathroom on Paige's phone.
Paige and Feigert also talked about the molestation in recorded phone calls he made from jail, court documents obtained by the Independent Record stated. Dopp testified that Feigert still claims to not remember taking part in these conversations despite the large amount of records indicating otherwise.
The officer also stated that Feigert continues to maintain she was being controlled through the use of drugs — apparently laying blame on Paige.
Paige pleaded guilty to two lesser child sex abuse counts in January 2018 as part of a plea arrangement with prosecutors, the Independent Record previously reported. As part of the deal, Paige agreed to cooperate with the then-ongoing prosecution of Feigert.
Paige currently faces 25 years to life in the Montana State Prison as a result of his plea, though his defense attorney and the prosecution would debate the exact terms of his sentence as part of the deal, according to previous reports.
Paige is currently incarcerated at a men's state prison in Shelby, Montana, according to prison records reviewed by Oxygen.com.
Feigert offered a prepared statement during her sentencing that claimed she would work to take court-ordered treatment seriously.
"I'm sorry I lost my way," she said, according to the Independent Record. "I ask for the chance to turn my words into actions."
