Blair Chiefstick Sentenced In U.S. District Court

The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Great Falls, on November 21, 2013, before Chief U.S. District Judge Dana L. Christensen, BLAIR CHIEFSTICK, a 22-year-old resident of Box Elder, was sentenced to a term of:

  • ison: 87 months
  • ecial Assessment: $100
  • pervised Release: 10 years

CHIEFSTICK was sentenced in connection with his guilty plea to aggravated sexual abuse.

In an Offer of Proof filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Danna R. Jackson, the government stated it would have proved at trial the following:

On September 2, 2012, after a night of huffing gasoline and drinking beer, CHIEFSTICK went to L.C.'s house. L.C.,J.C., and two children were at the home. CHIEFSTICK knocked on J.C.(s door and asked for some beer. CHIEFSTICK then grabbed J.C. by the ankles and drug her to another bedroom. He locked the door, pushed J.C. onto the floor, poured gasoline on J.C., and yelled that they were going to burn and die. CHIEFSTICK then sexually abused J.C.

CHIEFSTICK was arrested the next day. When interviewed, CHIEFSTICK told law enforcement that he knocked on J.C.(s door and asked for beer. He admitted that he pulled J.C. to the master bedroom. CHIEFSTICK recalled an altercation with L.C. and recalled jumping out a window and running away because he did not want to be caught by the police.

Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that CHIEFSTICK will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, CHIEFSTICK 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.
