Gordon Ray Mann, Jr. Sentenced in U.S. District Cour
Bill Mercer, United States Attorney for the District of Montana, announced today that during a federal court session in Great Falls, on February 9, 2009, before U.S. District Judge Sam E. Haddon, GORDON RAY MANN, JR., a 28-year-old resident of Browning, appeared for sentencing. MANN was sentenced to a term of:
- Prison: 280 months
- Special Assessment: $100
- Supervised Release: life
MANN was sentenced after having been found guilty during a 2-day trial of aggravated sexual abuse.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that MANN will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, MANN does have the opportunity to earn a sentence reduction for "good behavior." However, this reduction will not exceed 15% of the overall sentence.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Vince Carroll prosecuted the case for the United States.
The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Browning.
