Hill County Woman Sentenced for Money Laundering

GREAT FALLS, Mont. (NMB) – A Hill County woman was sentenced last week to time served and will be put on supervised release for three years. Amber Victoria Standingrock was sentenced for conspiracy to commit money laundering involving the distribution of oxycodone in Havre and Hill County, while two counts of financial transactions to conceal unlawful activity were dropped as part of a plea agreement.

Court documents say that between August 2017 and July 2018, a man traveled between Los Angeles and Montana several times to distribute oxycodone on the Rocky Boy’s Reservation. During the investigation, agents determined that Standingrock conducted financial transactions at the Wal-Mart in Havre on behalf of the man.

Video from the store showed Standingrock conducting transactions on May 4th and on June 17th in 2018. In total, she deposited over $3,500 into different accounts belonging to the man.
