Tyler Stenerson Sentenced in U.S. District Cour

Thursday, February 10, 2011

The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Billings, on February 10, 2011, before Chief U.S. District Judge Richard F. Cebull, TYLER STENERSON, a 39-year-old resident of Billings, appeared for sentencing. STENERSON was sentenced to a term of:

Prison: 130 months

Special Assessment: $100

Supervised Release: 4 years

STENERSON was sentenced in connection with his guilty plea to distribution of over 5 grams of actual methamphetamine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney James E. Seykora stated in court that the government would have proven at trial that STENERSON distributed over 5 grams of actual methamphetamine.

Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that STENERSON will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, STENERSON 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 and the Montana Division of Criminal Investigation.
