Corwin Dallas Four Star Sentenced in U.S. District Court
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Missoula, on September 27, 2013, before Chief U.S. District Judge Dana L. Christensen, CORWIN DALLAS FOUR STAR, a 19-year-old resident of Wolf Point and an enrolled member of a federally-recognized tribe, was sentenced to a term of:
Prison: 120 months
Special Assessment: $100
Supervised Release: 10 years
FOUR STAR was sentenced in connection with his guilty plea to sexual abuse.
In an Offer of Proof filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Laura B. Weiss, the government stated it would have proved at trial the following:
In the early morning hours of March 4, 2012, FOUR STAR got on top of the victim as she was sleeping and choked her to the point that she lost consciousness. He then sexually abused her. When the victim regained consciousness, she started screaming and trying to push him off. FOUR STAR held her arms down and punched her in the face.
The offense occurred within the exterior boundaries of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that FOUR STAR will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, FOUR STAR 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 Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Fort Peck Tribes Criminal Investigation Division.
