Derek Tyson Bellamy Sentenced in U.S. District Court
The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Billings, on October 21, 2013, before U.S. District Judge Donald W. Molloy, DEREK TYSON BELLAMY, a 31-year-old resident of Billings, was sentenced to a term of:
- ison: 63 months
- ecial Assessment: $100
- pervised Release: 3 years
BELLAMY was sentenced after a federal district court trial in which he was found guilty of being a felon-in-possession of a firearm.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Brendan P. McCarthy prosecuted the case for the United States.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that he will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, he 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.
