Jonathan James Henderson Sentenced in U.S. District Court
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Great Falls, on August 28, 2013, before Chief U.S. District Judge Dana L. Christensen, JONATHAN JAMES HENDERSON, a 28-year-old resident of Great Falls, was sentenced to a term of:
Prison: 90 months
Special Assessment: $100
Supervised Release: 4 years
HENDERSON was sentenced in connection with his guilty plea to possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine.
In an Offer of Proof filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Bryan R. Whittaker, the government stated it would have proved at trial the following:
Between February and April of 2011, in Cascade County, HENDERSON possessed with the intent to distribute 50 grams or more of a substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that HENDERSON will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, HENDERSON 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.
