John Carr Bracy Ii 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 Billings, on October 15, 2009, before Chief U.S. District Judge Richard F. Cebull, JOHN CARR BRACY II, a 47-year-old resident of Billings, appeared for sentencing. BRACY was sentenced to a term of:
- Prison: 120 months
- Special Assessment: $100
- Supervised Release: 5 years
BRACY was sentenced in connection with his guilty plea to conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute methamphetamine.
In an Offer of Proof filed by the United States, the government stated it would have proved at trial the following:
BRACY and other individuals were engaged in a conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute methamphetamine.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that BRACY will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, BRACY 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 James E. Seykora prosecuted the case for the United States.
The investigation was conducted by the Billings Big Sky Safe Streets Task Force.
