Jeremiah Lettiere Sentenced in U.S. District Cour
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Missoula, on April 9, 2010, before U.S. District Judge Donald W. Molloy, JEREMIAH LETTIERE, a 32-year-old resident of Cody, Wyoming, appeared for sentencing. LETTIERE was sentenced to a term of:
- Prison: 135 months
- Special Assessment: $200
- Supervised Release: 5 years
LETTIERE was sentenced after having been found guilty at trial of robbery and the use of a firearm during the commission of a crime of violence. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tara J. Elliott prosecuted the case for the United States.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that LETTIERE will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, LETTIERE 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 Drug Enforcement Administration, the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Task Force, the Missoula Police Department and the Missoula County Sheriff's Office.
