Tammy Gordon Sentenced in U.S. District Cour

Friday, July 10, 2009

Bill Mercer, United States Attorney for the District of Montana, announced today that during a federal court session in Billings, on July 10, 2009, before Chief U.S. District Judge Richard F. Cebull, TAMMY GORDON, a 44-year-old resident of Columbus, appeared for sentencing. GORDON was sentenced to a term of:

  • Prison: 120 months
  • Special Assessment: $100
  • Supervised Release: 5 years

GORDON was sentenced in connection with her guilty plea to conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute methamphetamine and distribution of methamphetamine.

In an Offer of Proof filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney James E. Seykora, the government stated it would have proved at trial the following:

GORDON was involved with other individuals in a conspiracy to possess and distribute over 500 grams of methamphetamine in the Billings area.

Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that GORDON will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, GORDON does have the opportunity to earn a sentence reduction for "good behavior." However, this reduction will not exceed 15% of the overall sentence.

The investigation was conducted by the Billings Big Sky Safe Streets Task Force.
