ANACONDA — A 13-year-old boy made an initial appearance in Anaconda district court Wednesday on accusations that he sexually assaulted a 4-year-old boy.
The teen appeared in court on a petition to declare him a delinquent youth. He is accused of one count of sexual intercourse without consent, which would be a felony if committed by an adult.
“This is serious, serious business,” Judge Ray Dayton told the boy in court.

The boy, dressed in a green T-shirt, blue jeans and sneakers, denied the allegations in the petition.
Court records said that in January a 4-year-old boy graphically described to a sibling and parents how the teen assaulted him. The preschooler later said during a forensic interview that the older boy had assaulted him on several occasions.
He is scheduled to appear again in court in May.
