Marshall Duane LaPier Sentenced in U.S. District Court

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thursday, December 20, 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, MARSHALL DUANE LAPIER, a 52-year-old resident of Great Falls, appeared for sentencing. LAPIER was sentenced to a term of:

Prison: 30 months

Special Assessment: $100

Supervised Release: 3 years

LAPIER was sentenced after a federal district court trial in which he was found guilty of being a felon-in-possession of a firearm. Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Kory Larsen prosecuted the case for the United States.

Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that LAPIER will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, LAPIER 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 a cooperative effort between the Great Falls Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
