Larry John Dauenhauer Sentenced in U.S. District Cour

Tuesday, April 03, 2012

The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Billings, on March 28, 2012, before Senior U.S. District Judge Jack D. Shanstrom, LARRY JOHN DAUENHAUER, a 66-year-old resident of Billings, appeared for sentencing. DAUENHAUER was sentenced to a term of:

Prison: life

Special Assessment: $100

Restitution: to be determined

Forfeiture: house

Supervised Release: 5 years

DAUENHAUER was sentenced after a federal district court trial in which he was found guilty of possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine. Assistant U.S. Attorney James E. Seykora prosecuted the case for the United States.

Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that DAUENHAUER will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, DAUENHAUER 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 Billings Big Sky Safe Streets Task Force.
