Montana State Fair carnival worker arrested for 2017 sexual assault

A Montana State Fair carnival worker has been arrested in connection to a 2017 sexual assault.

Lyle Oka made his initial appearance for one count of sexual intercourse without consent.

In July of 2017, the Cascade County Sheriff’s Office responded to Benefis Health System for a report of a sexual assault, according to court documents.

The 18-year old-victim told the deputy she had attended the Montana State Fair the night before.

She began talking to a carnival worker, later identified as Joshua Senaright, who was operating the bag toss booth.

When the fair was about to close for the night, Senaright asked the victim if she wanted to have a drink with him at his camper and she agreed.

The victim said she remembers another carnival worker making drinks for everyone and that he gave her one.
