Jeremy Leslie Adams 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 December 21, 2009, before U.S. District Judge Sam E. Haddon, JEREMY LESLIE ADAMS, a 35-year-old resident of South Dakota, appeared for sentencing. ADAMS was sentenced to a term of:
- Prison: 200 months
- Special Assessment: $100
- Supervised Release: 20 years
ADAMS was sentenced after having been found guilty of sexual abuse during a 2-day trial. Assistant U.S. Attorney Lori Harper Suek prosecuted the case for the United States.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that ADAMS will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, ADAMS 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 a cooperative effort between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Fort Peck Tribes Criminal Investigation Division.
