Man sentenced for failing to register as violent offender


January 12, 2018

A state District Court judge sentenced a Rocky Boy man to five years probation for failing to register as a violent offender.

District Judge Daniel Boucher sentenced Makray Lane Demontiney, 29, for failing to register as violent offender, a felony, to a five-year commitment to the Department of Corrections, all suspended.

A Hill County Sheriff’s Department deputy was notified July 11, 2014, that Demontiney was 82 days past the deadline to register in the violent offender registry. Demontiney was convicted January 2010 in District Court in Havre for assault with a weapon.

The deputy visited Demontiney in the Rocky Boy jail, where he was at the time. Demontiney said he hadn’t received the address verification letter. The deputy told him to update his registration as soon as he was released from custody. Demontiney said he would be out of jail by July 16, 2014.

Demontiney did not verify his registration until Sept. 8, 2014. He was noncompliant for 135 days, court charging documents say.

Demontiney has another open case in District Court, for allegedly crashing a vehicle April 17 after leading officers on a pursuit in Hill County and having more than 17 grams of methamphetamine hidden in the vehicle. He has pleaded not guilty to three charges related to that incident, one of which is a felony.

Demontiney was served a state District court warrant at Hill County Detention Center Wednesday at 4:49 p.m. He is listed on the jail roster at the detention center this morning.
