Two Missoula men face federal child sex charges (copy)

Two men were arraigned in Missoula U.S. District Court this week following allegations that they attempted to coerce minors into sex. One of the men is suspected of sex-trafficking minors. 

Cody A. Harrington, 29, from Missoula, pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges of attempted coercion and enticement of a minor and sex-trafficking of children, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced in a press release. 

Charles L. Isaacson, 62, of Seeley Lake, pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted coercion and enticement of a minor, receipt of child pornography and access with intent to view child pornography, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Federal court documents allege that on Nov. 2, 2022, Harrington used the internet to entice a person under 18 years old to engage in sexual activity. Beginning in the summer of 2019 and lasting until January 2020, Harrington is accused of trafficking the first survivor, who was under 18, for commercial sex purposes.
