Senator Greg Barkus to Be Charged

Montana State Senator Greg Barkus will be Charged in the boating accident involving Montana Representative according to our sources at KPAX News in Missoula,Montana.

Barkus and Congressman Denny Rehberg and three others in their party were seriously injured when Barkus' boat ran aground in the darkness near Bigfork in late August.

The case most likely will have to moved to another jurisdiction as all the Flathead Judges have recused themselves from the case.

"Montana State Senator Greg Barkus has officially been charged with three felonies in connection with the August 27th boat crash that injured Montana Congressman Dennis Rehberg and four others.

A judge signed the motion Wednesday morning which calls for Barkus to be charged with criminal endangerment and two counts of negligent vehicular assault, which are a result of the injuries sustained by Congressman Dennis Rehberg and staffer Dustin Frost." Via KPAX
