Jordan Lewis Patrick Wing Sentenced in U.S. District Cour
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Great Falls, on March 1, 2010, before U.S. District Judge Sam E. Haddon, JORDAN LEWIS PATRICK WING, a 21-year-old resident of Dodson, appeared for sentencing. WING was sentenced to a term of:
- Prison: 30 months
- Special Assessment: $100
- Restitution: $32,250
- Supervised Release: 3 years
WING was sentenced in connection with his guilty plea to burglary.
In an Offer of Proof filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy J. Racicot, the government stated it would have proved at trial the following:
WING is an enrolled member of the Fort Belknap Indian Tribes and resides on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation.
On June 25, 2007, Fort Belknap Police officers responded the report of a burglary at a home in Lodge Pole, which is within the exterior boundaries of the Fort Belknap Reservation. Upon arrival, the officers discovered that entry to the house had been gained by removing a piece of plywood from the back door and that numerous items of personal property had been stolen, including two rifles and a pistol, tools, a video game console and games, a sword collection, knives, a skill saw, a man's silver watch and other pieces of jewelry.
While the officers were investigating the burglary, they were called to the John Capture Center in Hays to respond to a report that WING was in the area and was pointing a shotgun at people. The officers found WING near the John Capture Center. He was in possession of a shotgun, which he pointed at one of the officers. WING then placed the shotgun on the ground in front of him and the officers arrested him. During a search incident to arrest, the officers seized a pistol from WING's waistband. Both the shotgun, a Norinco 12-gauge shotgun, model 98, and the pistol, a Hi-Standard .22-caliber pistol, were identified as having been stolen during the burglary.
On July 31, 2008, J.B. was interviewed by the FBI. J.B. described participating in the burglary with WING, observing WING remove the shotgun and the pistol from the house, and described WING's possession of the stolen firearms at the John Capture Center on June 25, 2007.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that WING will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, WING 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 Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Fort Belknap Police Department.
