Glasgow, Watford City Men Arrested For Sexual Abuse Of Children

Montana Department of Justice’s Division of Criminal Investigation agents arrested two men in Glendive for attempting to have sex with a child, Friday, Oct. 10.
Dawson County Attorney Olivia Rieger has charged Steven Cory Unger, 25, of Glasgow and John Allyn Parker, 37, of Watford City, N.D., with one count each of sexual abuse of children.
Unger and Parker were bound over from justice court to Dawson County District Court, Tuesday, Oct. 14. They will make their first court appearance, Tuesday, Oct. 21. Unger was released on $75,000 bond and Parker was reported on Wednesday, Oct. 15, to have been lodged in the Dawson County Correctional Facility.
The Montana Attorney General’s Office reported that the men were arrested after responding in-person to prostitution advertisements that state agents placed on Craigslist and Backpage.com. When initially responding to the ads online, the suspects were notified that the females would be 13 and 15 years old. They then made arrangements to come to Glendive.
“This operation is part of our ongoing efforts to find and prosecute the predators who prey upon Montana’s children,” Attorney General Tim Fox said. “It also testifies to the great results we can achieve when local, state, and federal law enforcement partners work together for a common goal.”
The Glendive Police, Dawson County Sheriff’s Office, state investigators from Montana and North Dakota, and the FBI were involved in the investigation.
