Devan Kelly Sentenced To 7 Years In Prison For Distribution Of Methamphetamine In Lewistown

The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Great Falls, on March 31, 2014, before U.S. District Judge Brian M. Morris, DEVAN CLINTON KELLY, 27, of Brusett, Montana, was sentenced to a term of 84 months' imprisonment, five years of supervised release, and a special assessment of $100.

Kelly was sentenced in connection with his December 19, 2013, guilty plea to distribution of methamphetamine. In an Offer of Proof filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jessica Betley, the government stated it would have proved that beginning in January 2013, undercover agents began to buy methamphetamine from Devan Kelly. These sales progressed, and in April, agents inquired into whether Kelly would sell them a pound of methamphetamine. Kelly agreed to sell a pound of methamphetamine for $23,000.00. Kelly and the agents then agreed the sale would take place in Lewistown, Montana, on April 29, 2013. The sale took place, and Kelly gave undercover agents the pound of methamphetamine. This methamphetamine was tested and the laboratory concluded it was 99.5% pure and contained 439.0 grams of actual methamphetamine.

This investigation was conducted by the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force.
