Montana Department of Justice Assisting with James Jensen Investigation

Confidential hotline and email established for survivor reporting

At the request of the Custer County Attorney’s Office, Attorney General Tim Fox has directed the Montana Department of Justice to provide investigative assistance with allegations recently made against James Jensen. Jensen, a former Custer County District High School Athletic Trainer, faces multiple allegations of sexual abuse.

State agents are coordinating with law enforcement and conducting interviews related to the allegations.

“We take the revelations that recently surfaced in Miles City very seriously,” said Bryan Lockerby, administrator of the Department of Justice’s Division of Criminal Investigation. “We are deploying investigative resources to support local law enforcement and the county attorney’s office on this sensitive matter.”

The Montana Department of Justice has established a dedicated phone number and email address for any alleged survivors of James Jensen to report allegations and provide contact information for investigative follow-up. Citizens who feel they may have been victimized may call 406-438-2354 or email:  [email protected]

Additional survivor service resources are available in a number of communities around Montana, many of which can be found on the Montana Department of Justice website and at www.rainn.org.

“The allegations against James Jensen are deeply troubling, and my office will do everything in its power to ensure justice is served,” Custer County Attorney Wyatt Glade said. “I urge anyone who feels they have been victimized by Jensen to report the information to the Department of Justice as soon as possible.”
