Florence, AZ – Montana Scott, 36, was sentenced last Tuesday to 10.5 years in prison for possession of methamphetamine and illegal weapons, after a jury found him guilty in absentia last year.
“I am proud of law enforcement, our prosecutors and the courts for protecting our families by getting those that sell poison like methamphetamine off of our streets,” said James P. Walsh, Pinal County Attorney and Pinal County Substance Abuse Council Chairman.
Scott was arrested in Casa Grande on Sept. 28, 2009 when Casa Grande Police Department officers served a search warrant on the home where Scott was staying. He posted bond and was released but, failed to appear for his trial.
He was convicted of one count of possession of meth one count of possession of drug paraphernalia possessing a deadly weapon as a convicted felon possessing a sawed-off- shotgun and misdemeanor theft for having in his possession a stolen laptop computer. Federal Marshalls located and arrested Scott in Pima county this fall.
Scott’s prior convictions for drug offenses were considered aggravating factors by the court during his sentencing.
