Corina Moldrem Sentenced in U.S. District Court
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Billings, on May 29, 2013, before U.S. District Judge Sam E. Haddon, CORINA MOLDREM, a 26-year-old resident of Billings, was sentenced to a term of:
Prison: 92 months
Special Assessment: $100
Supervised Release: 5 years
MOLDREM was sentenced in connection with her guilty plea to conspiracy to possess and distribute methamphetamine.
In an Offer of Proof filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jessica T. Fehr, the government stated it would have proved at trial the following:
Beginning in late 2009, a drug distribution group out of Las Vegas, Nevada, were distributing methamphetamine in Billings and the surrounding area. The F.B.I. Big Sky Safe Streets Task Force (BSSSTF) began an investigation and arranged for the purchase of methamphetamine from Jose Aguilar, Jr. and Anjel Aguilar. The BSSSTF learned that the Aguilar brothers were utilizing a distribution network in Billings to distribute Flores' methamphetamine. Two of the distributors for the group were Jeri Milheim and Corina MOLDREM.
The investigation by law enforcement uncovered that MOLDREM, along with others, not only distributed methamphetamine for the organization, but participated in the transportation, unpacking and repackaging of half pound to pound quantities of methamphetamine.
As part of the investigation, a probation search was conducted at MOLDREM's residence on July 16, 2010. The search uncovered 56.0 grams of meth, along with meth pipes, a drug scale, and a loaded .45 caliber handgun.
MOLDREM was interviewed and admitted to distributing methamphetamine personally as well as to assisting others in the transportation, unpacking and repackaging of methamphetamine for distribution in the Billings area.
MOLDREM admitted that she participated in a conspiracy that possessed and distributed over 500 grams of methamphetamine from the Summer of 2009, and continuing thereafter until in or about the late Summer of 2010.
Jose Aguilar, Anjel Aguilar, and Milheim pled guilty to federal charges and have been sentenced.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that MOLDREM will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, MOLDREM 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 Billings Big Sky Safe Streets Task Force.
