Ricky Allen Dennis Sentenced in U.S. District Court
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Billings, on April 11, 2013, before U.S. District Judge Richard F. Cebull, RICKY ALLEN DENNIS, a 38-year-old resident of Billings, appeared for sentencing. DENNIS was sentenced to a term of:
Prison: 73 months
Special Assessment: $600
Supervised Release: 3 years
DENNIS was sentenced for (4) counts of being a felon-in-possession of a firearm and conspiracy to commit a robbery affecting interstate commerce.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Marcia K. Hurd and Jessica T. Fehr. Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that DENNIS will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, DENNIS 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.
