Rodrick D. Gant Sentenced in U.S. District Court
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Billings, on February 13, 2013, before Chief U.S. District Judge Richard F. Cebull, RODRICK D. GANT, a 23-year-old resident of Billings, was sentenced to a term of:
Prison: 106 months
Special Assessment: $300
Supervised Release: 5 years
GANT was sentenced after a federal district court trial in which he was found guilty of conspiracy to commit robbery affecting interstate commerce, possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence, and possession of a firearm by a person convicted of domestic abuse.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Marcia K. Hurd prosecuted the case for the United States.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that GANT will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, GANT 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.
