Arvin Bon Red Star Sentenced in U.S. District Cour
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Great Falls, on December 1, 2010, before U.S. District Judge Sam E. Haddon, ARVIN BON RED STAR, a 21-year-old resident of Poplar, appeared for sentencing. RED STAR was sentenced to a term of:
- Prison: 216 months
- Special Assessment: $100
- Supervised Release: 10 years
RED STAR was sentenced after a federal district court trial in which he was found guilty of aggravated sexual abuse. 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 RED STAR will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, RED STAR 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.
