A man listing a Mountain View, Missouri, address appeared in Baxter County Circuit Court Thursday and pled not guilty to charges against him.

Thirty-three-year-old Michael Anthony Fieger Jr. was booked into the Baxter County Detention Center Oct. 23.

Charges shown on the jail log are failure to register as a sex offender, residential burglary and theft of property.

His bond is set at $25,000.

According to information on the National Sex Offender Registry, Fieger was convicted of two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child charges stemming from an incident that took place in Oakley, Kansas.

According to the registry, the then 23-year-old Fieger had inappropriate sexual contact with a 15-year-old-female in late July 2010.

Fieger is listed as a Level 3 offender, meaning he presents a high risk of reoffending and a high degree of danger to the public.

Fieger is also charged with being involved in the theft of approximately 12 knives – two of them handcrafted – along with collectible coins and Xanax pills.

The items were allegedly taken from a home possibly using the resident’s keys.

Information in the probable cause affidavit is difficult to follow. Baxter County deputy sheriffs responding to the theft report said the owner of the allegedly stolen property had “a strong odor of intoxicants” coming from his person, and information he provided was “sometimes confusing.”

Fieger was ordered to reappear in circuit court Nov. 5.
