Jason Lee Albritton Sentenced in U.S. District Cour

Thursday, December 17, 2009

Bill Mercer, United States Attorney for the District of Montana, announced today that during a federal court session in Great Falls, on December 17, 2009, before U.S. District Judge Sam E. Haddon, JASON LEE ALBRITTON, a 35-year-old resident of Great Falls, appeared for sentencing. ALBRITTON was sentenced to a term of:

  • Prison: 105 months, consecutive to another sentence
  • Special Assessment: $100
  • Restitution: $135,742
  • Supervised Release: 3 years

ALBRITTON was sentenced in connection with his guilty plea to credit union robbery.

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

On June 19, 2006, ALBRITTON robbed the Family First Federal Credit Union in Great Falls. ALBRITTON entered the Credit Union wearing a mask and carrying a black bag and a BB pistol. ALBRITTON pointed the BB pistol at the tellers and ordered them to get on the ground. ALBRITTON then pointed the BB pistol at another Credit Union employee and followed her into the Credit Union's vault. ALBRITTON emptied the money from the main vault box and teller drawers into the black bag and left the Credit Union with a total of $134,827.

Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that ALBRITTON will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, ALBRITTON 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 a cooperative effort between the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Great Falls Police Department and Missoula Police Department.
