From the Courts - State District Court: Man sentenced to probation for violating conditions on drug sentence


Last updated 9/24/2020 at 10:11am

Jordan James Normandy had his deferred imposition of sentence revoked in state District Court in Havre and was resentenced to two years of probation after he previously admitted violations of his conditions of release on a sentence for possession of methamphetamine.

Normandy was charged Oct 23. 2018, with criminal possession of dangerous drugs, a felony, when officers found a bindle of meth on him while he was being booked into the Hill County Detention Center March 19, 2017.

He pleaded guilty in a plea agreement July 9, 2019, and state District Judge John Oldenburg imposed a two-year deferred imposition of sentence on the charge.

Hill County Attorney’s Office filed a petition to revoke the sentence Jan 2, alleging he had changed his residence without notifying authorities, had failed to attend addiction counseling, had failed to report to his supervising officers and had admitted using meth and marijuana.

He admitted June 30 committing the violations of conditions of his release.

Oldenburg revoked the deferred imposition of sentence Sept. 14 and resentenced Normandy to two years with the state Department of Corrections, all suspended, and credited him with 44 days served and 19 days street time. He ordered Normandy to get a chemical dependency evaluation and follow all recommendations in the evaluation.

If Normandy had abided by all conditions of his release in the deferred imposition of sentence, once the probationary period was over he could have petitioned to have the felony charge struck from his record.
