BILLINGS -

The man accused of raping a 6-year-old girl and possessing child pornography appears in court.

James Hopkins, 44, pleads not guilty to four counts of sexual intercourse without consent and 18 counts of sexual abuse of children. Charging documents show the six-year-old victim told her mom Hopkins sexually assaulted her. Investigations revealed Hopkins and his wife would babysit the six-year-old, while her mom went to work. The girl told police Hopkins took pictures of her.

Billings Police detectives say they found pornography in Hopkins' home, including 166 photos of the six-year-old, and nearly 400 photos of other children. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children found a series of photos involving children from all over the world and the US.
