Charles William Spotted Elk-booth, Jr. Sentenced in U.S. District Cour

Wednesday, April 07, 2010

The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Billings, on April 7, 2010, before Chief U.S. District Judge Richard F. Cebull, CHARLES WILLIAM SPOTTED ELK-BOOTH, JR., a resident of Lame Deer, appeared for sentencing. SPOTTED ELK-BOOTH was sentenced to a term of:

  • Prison: 300 months
  • Special Assessment: $100
  • Supervised Release: 15 years

SPOTTED ELK-BOOTH was sentenced after having been found guilty at trial of attempted aggravated sexual abuse. 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 SPOTTED ELK-BOOTH will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, SPOTTED ELK-BOOTH 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 Bureau of Indian Affairs.
