Gregory Rider Sentenced in U.S. District Court

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Great Falls, on December 17, 2012, before U.S. District Judge Sam E. Haddon, GREGORY RIDER, a 47-year-old resident of Harlem, was sentenced to a term of:

Prison: 37 months

Special Assessment: $100

Supervised Release: 5 years

RIDER was sentenced in connection with his guilty plea to sexual abuse of a minor.

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

Between approximately July 1, 2005, and approximately July 1, 2007, RIDER sexually abused a minor at his home located on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation.

Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that RIDER will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, RIDER 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 Federal Bureau of Investigation.
