A convicted sex offender who appeared in 15th District Court on a felony charge of failure to register as a sexual offender received a suspended prison sentence as a result of a plea bargain, Wednesday, May 28.
Judge David Cybulski accepted a plea agreement from Michael Everett Bos, 45, who is listed as living in Culbertson on the National Sex Offender Registry.
Cybulski sentenced Bos to five years in the custody of the Montana Department of Corrections, with all prison time suspended, a fine of $25,000 with $15,000 suspended, and other fees and conditions.
According to the National Sex Offender Registry, Bos has lived in Florida, Louisiana and Michigan, has a past conviction for three-degree criminal sexual conduct and is required to register as a sex offender. Specifics about the out-of-state offense were not stated on the national registry or 15th District Court court documents.
A bench warrant had been issued for Bos. Cybulski quashed the warrant when he voluntarily appeared in court, Wednesday, May 14. He was ordered to return to court Wednesday, May 28.
