Charles Runyan, Jr. Sentenced in U.S. District Cour

Thursday, March 18, 2010

The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Great Falls, on March 18, 2010, before U.S. District Judge Sam E. Haddon, CHARLES RUNYAN, JR., a 33-year-old resident of Havre, appeared for sentencing. RUNYAN was sentenced to a term of:

  • Prison: 27 months
  • Special Assessment: $100
  • Supervised Release: 5 years

RUNYAN was sentenced after having been found guilty after a bench trial of failure to register as a sexual offender. Assistant U.S. Attorney Rebekah J. French prosecuted the case for the United States.

Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that RUNYAN will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, RUNYAN 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 U.S. Marshals Service.
