Clement David King Sentenced in U.S. District Cour
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Great Falls, on November 8, 2010, before U.S. District Judge Sam E. Haddon, CLEMENT DAVID KING, a 22-year-old resident of Hays, appeared for sentencing. KING was sentenced to a term of:
- Prison: 175 months
- Special Assessment: $100
- Supervised Release: life
KING was sentenced after a federal district court trial in which he was found guilty of sexual abuse of a minor, which occurred on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Marcia K. Hurd prosecuted the case for the United States.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that KING will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, KING 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 Federal Bureau of Investigation.
