The grandson of a former Anaconda-Deer Lodge County commissioner will go to trial in September, accused of having an outburst after his grandfather's verdict was read.
Anthony Robles, 18, of Anaconda faces two misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and first offense partner or family member assault.
On April 25, Robert Pierce was convicted of felony sexual assault and sexual intercourse without consent in the Anaconda-Deer Lodge County courthouse. Robles was in the courtroom when the verdict was read. Court documents say he yelled profanities in the courtroom and caused reasonable apprehension of bodily injury to family members.
He was arrested on site and held in jail overnight. The next day he pleaded not guilty to the charges and posted bond. A jury trial has been scheduled for Sept. 5.
In April, Pierce was found guilty of sex crimes involving a young girl. The victim, now 14, listed at least three occasions when Pierce touched her or made her touch him inappropriately. She was in 3rd or 4th grade when the first alleged incident occurred.
