A 29-year-old man has been charged with felony sexual abuse of children in Butte justice court.

J Cee Felde of Butte had his initial appearance before Judge Debra Williams on Thursday afternoon. He is being held at the Butte-Silver Bow Detention Center on $100,000 bond. A preliminary hearing was set for Feb. 25.

In a complaint filed Thursday, county prosecutors allege Felde “knowingly processed visual or print medium, including a medium by use of electronic communication in which children are engaged in sexual conduct, actual or simulated.”

Sheriff Ed Lester said Felde was arrested Tuesday after a search of a residence on the 1600 block of Grand Avenue, where evidence was recovered. The multi-jurisdictional investigation was coordinated by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
