Harlem man sentenced to prison for beating, strangling woman on Fort Belknap Indian Reservation

GREAT FALLS — A Harlem man who admitted beating and strangling a woman on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation was sentenced today to 51 months in prison and three years of supervised release, U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme said.

Douglas Floyd Main, 33, pleaded guilty in May to domestic abuse by habitual offender.

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

In court documents filed in the case, the prosecution said Main beat and strangled a dating partner in November 2019 at a residence in Fort Belknap Agency, on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation. Main had two prior convictions of abuse of a family member in 2007 and 2015 in Fort Belknap Tribal Court.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jared Cobell prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the FBI and Fort Belknap Law Enforcement Services.
