Alfred Albert Comes Last Sentenced in U.S. District Cour
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Great Falls, on June 28, 2010, before U.S. District Judge Sam E. Haddon, ALFRED ALBERT COMES LAST, a 67-year-old resident of Wolf Point, appeared for sentencing. COMES LAST was sentenced to a term of:
- Prison: 12 months
- Special Assessment: $100
- Supervised Release: 3 years
COMES LAST was sentenced in connection with his guilty plea to failure to register as a sexual offender.
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, which is within the exterior boundaries of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation.
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.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that COMES LAST will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, COMES LAST 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 U.S. Marshals Service and the Roosevelt County Sheriff's Office.
