Perry Pinner Sentenced in U.S. District Cour
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Missoula, on December 3, 2010, before U.S. District Judge Donald W. Molloy, PERRY PINNER, a 35-year-old resident of Missoula, appeared for sentencing. PINNER was sentenced to a term of:
- Prison: 12 months and 1 day
- Special Assessment: $100
- Supervised Release: 4 years
PINNER was sentenced in connection with his guilty plea to conspiracy to manufacture marijuana.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Tara J. Elliott stated the government would have proved at trial the following:
From May 2006, to April 4, 2008, PINNER was involved in a conspiracy with other individuals to manufacture marijuana in the Missoula area.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that PINNER will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, PINNER 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 Drug Enforcement Administration.
