Browning man sentenced for molesting children

GREAT FALLS—A Browning man who admitted to sexually molesting two children on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation was sentenced today to 27 months in prison, a lifetime of supervised release and ordered to pay $442 restitution, U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme said.

Edward Dean Cassidy, 53, pleaded guilty in September to abusive sexual contact of a minor.

U.S. District Judge Brian M. Morris presided.

Court records filed by the prosecution said that from 2014 to 2016, Cassidy sexually molested two minor children, who were under the age of 12 years.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Ryan Weldon prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the FBI.
