Harlem man sentenced for domestic abuse
GREAT FALLS—Harlem resident Tristen Jace Gone, who admitted hitting his domestic partner, was sentenced today to three years in federal prison and two years of supervised release, U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme said.
Gone, 19, pleaded guilty in November to domestic abuse by a habitual offender.
U.S. District Judge Brian M. Morris presided.
Prosecutors said evidence showed that Gone punched the victim in the face and arm and threw her down after she received a court subpoena on July 9, 2018 in Newtown on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation. Gone has two prior domestic convictions from Fort Belknap Tribal Court.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Paulette Stewart prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the Fort Belknap Tribal Police and FBI.
