Robert Rowe Sentenced in U.S. District Cour
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Missoula, on October 21, 2011, before U.S. District Judge Donald W. Molloy, ROBERT ROWE, a 36-year-old resident of Missoula, appeared for sentencing. ROWE was sentenced to a term of:
- Prison: 188 months
- Special Assessment: $300
- Restitution: $31,400
- Supervised Release: life
ROWE was sentenced after a federal district court trial in which he was found guilty of sexual exploitation of children and possession of child pornography. Assistant U.S. Attorney Cyndee L. Peterson prosecuted the case for the United States.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that ROWE will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, ROWE 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 Montana Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force.
