A 42-year-old Butte man was charged with felony sexual intercourse without consent Tuesday morning in Judge Ben Pezdark’s court. The alleged victim is a 15-year-old girl.

According to court documents, Paul Anthony Weitzel of Butte knowingly had sex with an underage minor in the 700 block of West Galena Street last December.

Because of the victim’s age, Weitzel could get life imprisonment or be imprisoned for a term not less than four years or more than 100 years. He also could be fined $50,000.

Weitzel remains in the Butte jail. Bond has been set at $100,000.
