GREAT FALLS – Davin Dahl faces one charge of sexual assault of a child for an incident that allegedly happened between November of 2014 and August of 2018.

Court documents state that Great Falls police detectives began initially investigating a report concerning an injury to a child’s testicles, which required emergency surgery, in April 2018.

A female child said the injury occurred after she bit him. She told detectives Dahl “taught her how to do that.” She later said the injury was from a bicycle accident.

About four months later, the female child was found engaging in oral sex with another child. The female child stated again that Dahl “taught her and that there was nothing wrong with it.”

According to court documents, detectives conducted numerous interviews, including with Dahl who refuted the allegations that he taught one child oral sex.

Dahl told detectives he had previously been charged with a sex crime “because a girl tried to claim he jumped on her, but that it was all lies.”
