Box Elder Man Sentenced to Prison for Distributing Meth to Minor

GREAT FALLS, Mont. (NMB) – A Box Elder man who admitted to providing methamphetamine to a minor girl has been sentenced to 51 months in prison and six years of supervised release.

James Dean Stump, 34, pleaded guilty back in December in U.S. District Court to possession with intent to distribute meth to a person under 21.

Chief U.S. District Judge Brian M. Morris presided and ordered Stump detained.

In court documents filed in the case, the government alleged that from about July 2018 to July 2020 Stump provided a minor girl with methamphetamine. The minor girl tested positive for meth and said she had received the drug from Stump.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jared Cobell prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the FBI, Chippewa Cree Law Enforcement Services and Hill County Sheriff’s Office.
