A man earlier convicted of impersonating a federal agent has now been sentenced to prison for sexually assaulting a teen.
Justin Curtis Huckaby, 37, was sentenced to 15 years in the Montana State Prison, with five years suspended, in Yellowstone County District Court.
Huckaby was originally accused of raping a 15-year-old girl and forcing her to take and sell meth.
Under a plea deal, prosecutors dismissed three of the original counts, and Huckaby pleaded guilty to sexual assault. The parties jointly recommended 10 years in prison with five suspended.
District Court Judge Jessica Fehr designated Huckaby a level two sexual offender, which indicates a moderate risk for re-offending. There are three levels.
Huckaby must complete the first two phases of sexual offender treatment before being eligible for parole.
In a separate case, Huckaby was convicted of impersonating a Drug Enforcement Administration agent, and wearing a tactical vest and holstered firearms as he jumped out of his car and told a man he was compromising Huckaby's investigation, charges state.
The man had sought to confront Huckaby over rumors Huckaby apparently started that the man was cooperating with law enforcement, charges state. Huckaby had previously sold meth to the man, according to charges.
Huckaby was sentenced to five years with the Department of Corrections for the impersonation case.
District Court Judge Jessica Fehr sentenced him on the sexual assault case June 5.
