GREAT FALLS - The Great Falls man who's charged with felony burglary, felony sexual abuse of children, and misdemeanor surreptitious visual observation, pleaded not guilty in a Great Falls courtroom on Thursday.
Jeremiah Chase Fisher is facing the charges after reportedly entering a south-side Great Falls home in November and standing over the bed of Terri Flebotte as she slept.
Flebotte awoke to find a man standing over her, pointing a cell phone at her.
The man who broke into the Flebotte residence left behind a pair of shoes, a baseball hat, and a cell phone.
After getting a search warrant, Great Falls police retrieved photos and information from the cell phone.
Some of the photos depicted a person who matched Flebotte's description of the home intruder, and the name "Fisher" was on several of the photos.
Police then contacted Fisher and arrested him.
Court documents state that in addition to photos on the phone that match the description of Fisher, there were also more than 100 images of "pre-pubescent males and females engaged in sex acts" on the phone.
Fisher's trial has been scheduled for April.
