BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A former disability services worker has been charged with exploitation after allegedly trying to begin a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old group home resident.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1iV67DJ ) 47-year-old Jason Oland was charged Thursday with felony exploitation of a person with a developmental disability. His bond has been set at $25,000.

Oland had worked for the disability services organization, COR Enterprises, when he met the teenage girl.

Court documents say the girl told police Oland had sent her nude photos and that they had held hands and kissed at her group home. She said she told Oland she couldn’t have sex with him.

Oland initially denied the allegations, but later said the teen was his girlfriend.

Oland’s attorney noted that Oland also has mental deficiencies.
