From the Courts: State District Court - Woundedface again resentenced on probation violations


Chad. J. Woundedface was sentenced to serve out the remaining portion of a sentence that had been suspended for drug charges in a 2014 case.

He was charged Sept. 25, 2014, with felony counts of distribution of morphine and distribution of imitation drugs and accountability for the distribution of methamphetamine from incidents in 2013.

In December 2014, he pleaded guilty in a plea agreement to the first two counts, criminal distribution of dangerous drugs and criminal distribution of imitation dangerous drugs.

March 12, 2015, Judge Dan Boucher imposed in state District Court in Havre a three-year deferred imposition of sentence and ordered him to pay restitution, fines and fees.

If Woundedface had abided by all conditions of his release, after the deferred imposition he could have petitioned to have the charges struck from his record.

March 25, 2015, he admitted violating conditions of his release and April 7, 2015, Boucher revoked the deferred imposition and sentenced Woundedface to five years with the state Department of Corrections with two suspended.

November 5, 2018, Woundedface admitted again violating conditions of his release including remaining law abiding, not using drugs or alcohol and paying supervision fees. Boucher sentenced him to two years, all suspended, with credit for 158 days served.

Feb. 19. Woundedface admitted violating release conditions including changing his residence without notifying authorities, using alcohol and failing to report.

Judge Olivia Rieger, who assumed jurisdiction over the case after Boucher retired in November, revoked the suspended sentence and resentenced Woundedface to two years with credit for 180 days served and recommended Department of Corrections place him in a treatment center.
