Amillio Trinidad Reyna Sentenced in U.S. District Cour

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Friday, June 01, 2012

The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Billings, on June 1, 2012, before Chief U.S. District Judge Richard F. Cebull, AMILLIO TRINIDAD REYNA, a 20-year-old resident of Billings, appeared for sentencing. REYNA was sentenced to a term of:

  • Prison: 48 months
  • Special Assessment: $400
  • Supervised Release: 3 years

REYNA was sentenced in connection with his guilty plea to possession of a stolen firearm and distribution of Schedule II narcotics.

In an Offer of Proof filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Marcia K. Hurd, the government stated it would have proved at trial the following:

On February 17, 2011, REYNA and Angela Robinson sold an undercover agent 15 Adderall pills for $150, a Schedule II controlled substance. The prescription drugs belonged to Robinson's minor child.

On March 8, 2011, REYNA and Robinson sold an undercover Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) agent a stolen HWM model Windicator, .357 caliber revolver at an undercover location in Billings. The gun was reported stolen in Billings on February 3, 2011. The victim reported that the gun was missing from her backpack after she had visited the residence that REYNA and Robinson lived in at the time. REYNA knew or had reasonable cause to know that the firearm was stolen.

On April 13, 2011, REYNA and Robinson sold an undercover agent 10 Adderall pills for $100, a Schedule II controlled substance.

On August 25, 2011, REYNA and Robinson sold an undercover agent 4 Morphine Sulfate pills for $360, a Schedule II controlled substance.

REYNA knew the substances he was selling were controlled substances.

Robinson pled guilty to federal charges and is awaiting sentencing.

Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that REYNA will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, REYNA 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 Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
