A 27-year-old Missoula man at the Occupy Missoula encampment on the Missoula County Courthouse lawn is accused of getting an 11-year-old boy drunk.

John Skinner is charged with endangering the welfare of a child in connection with the incident last Thursday. He pleaded not guilty in Missoula County Municipal Court.

“Indications are that he provided alcohol to this young man,” said Missoula Police Detective Lt. Scott Brodie. The boy, he said, ended up “deathly ill” in Skinner’s tent. Eventually, someone called 9-1-1 and the boy was treated at a hospital, he said.
