The man who escaped from the Law and Justice Center last month, Kevin Anthony Briggs, made his first court appearance in Gallatin County Justice Court on Tuesday morning.
Briggs is facing four felony charges of aggravated assault, attempted sexual intercourse without consent, assault of a peace officer and escape.
Briggs was arrested in Portland, Oregon on February 21st. Four days later he waived extradition.
In Gallatin County Justice Court on Tuesday, County Attorney, Marty Lambert requested that Briggs' bail be set $1 million because of his flight risk.
The defense did not recommend a bond amount for Briggs in court.
Lambert says if Briggs is convicted of all four charges, he could face up 140 years in prison.
