Roy Wesley Doty and Robert M. Longan Sentenced in U.S. District Court

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thursday, June 28, 2012

The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Billings, on June 27, 2012, before Chief U.S. District Judge Richard F. Cebull, ROY WESLEY DOTY, age 56, and ROBERT M. LONGAN, age 59, residents of Washington, appeared for sentencing.

DOTY was sentenced to a term of:

Prison: 48months

Special Assessment: $100

Supervised Release: 4 years

LONGAN was sentenced to a term of:

Prison: 72 months

Special Assessment: $100

Supervised Release: 4 years

They were each sentenced in connection with their guilty pleas to conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute cocaine.

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

DOTY and LONGAN were involved with numerous individuals in a conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute cocaine.

Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that they will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, they do 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, the Montana Department of Criminal Investigation, and the Southwest Montana Drug Task Force.
