Alfred Albert Comes Last Pleads Guilty in U.S. Federal Cour
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Great Falls on March 16, 2010, before U.S. District Judge Sam E. Haddon, ALFRED ALBERT COMES LAST, a 67-year-old resident of Wolf Point, pled guilty to failure to register as a sexual offender. Sentencing has been set for June 28, 2010. He is currently detained.
In an Offer of Proof filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Rebekah J. French, the government stated it would have proved at trial the following:
On July 17, 2000, COMES LAST was convicted of sexual abuse of a minor. The conditions of supervised release imposed on COMES LAST included a requirement that he comply with the State of Montana Sex Offender Registration requirements. COMES LAST completed his initial sex offender registration in 2002.
In November of 2008, COMES LAST updated his registration and provided an address on Idaho Street in Wolf Point.
In September of 2009, the compliance officer for the Roosevelt County Sheriff's Office stopped by the Idaho Street address provided by COMES LAST at his last registration and learned that he had moved out of that residence two months before. The officer located COMES LAST, who then admitted that he was living at his daughter's house and had not updated his registered address as required.
COMES LAST faces possible penalties of 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and 3 years supervised release.
The investigation was a cooperative effort between the U.S. Marshals Service and the Roosevelt County Sheriff's Office.
