Otis Gene Crosby Browning Man, 74, Draws 10 Years In Prison

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Montana

The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Great Falls, Montana, on February 13, 2014, before U.S. District Judge Brian M. Morris, OTIS GENE CROSBY, 74, of Browning, was sentenced to a term of 120 months imprisonment with ten years of supervised release to follow his release after pleading guilty to Aggravated Sexual Abuse.

The Court sentenced Crosby to the top of the range recommended under the federal sentencing guidelines. Because there is no parole in the federal system, the truth in sentencing guidelines mandate that Crosby will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court in prison. In the federal system, Crosby does have the opportunity to shorten the term of custody by earning credit for good behavior. However, this reduction will not exceed 15% of the overall sentence.

No other details are being released. The Government's Offer of Proof and Sentencing Memorandum are public record and may be electronically accessed using the PACER system at PACER Case Reference: 13-96
