According to court documents, on Aug. 9, law enforcement received a child protection report indicating that Ryan Thomas Feine had sexually assaulted an infant girl. Investigators believe the girl was to be less than a year old at the time of the assault.

Feine is charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct which carries a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and $40,000 fine if convicted.

This conduct was documented in a series of seven photos collected by law enforcement. Many of these photographs depict Feine in the act.

Feine admitted to being the person in the photographs and to assaulting the girl over a one-month period, the report said.

Investigators believe the photos were taken in 2013.

A $250,000 conditional bond and a $500,000 nonconditional bond were set for Feine’s release. He was also ordered not to have any contact with the girl. His next court date is Sept. 10.
