Jonathan James Henderson Sentenced in U.S. District Court
|U.S. Attorney’s Office September 04, 2013|
The United States Attorney’s Office announced that during a federal court session in Great Falls on August 28, 2013, before Chief U.S. District Judge Dana L. Christensen, Jonathan James Henderson, a 28-year-old resident of Great Falls, was sentenced to a term of:
- Prison: 90 months
- Special assessment: $100
- Supervised release: four years
Henderson was sentenced in connection with his guilty plea to possession with the intent to distribute methamphetamine.
In an offer of proof filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Bryan R. Whittaker, the government stated it would have proved at trial the following:
Between February and April 2011, in Cascade County, Henderson possessed with the intent to distribute 50 grams or more of a substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance.
Because there is no parole in the federal system, the “truth in sentencing” guidelines mandate that Henderson will likely serve all the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, Henderson does have the opportunity to earn a sentence reduction for “good behavior.” However, this reduction will not exceed 15 percent of the overall sentence.
The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
