Maw sentenced for violating suspended sentence

Posted: Jan 08, 2018 10:32 PM Updated:

Frederick J. Maw was sentenced to 15 years in the Montana State Prison for violating the terms of a 2015 suspended sentence.

In that case, Maw was accused of setting a series of arson fires in 2013 in Lewis and Clark and Broadwater counties.

In August of 2017, Maw was given a 20-year prison sentence for setting another arson fire on the Triple 8 Ranch in April of 2016, which violated the terms of the 2015 suspended sentence.

Judge Kathy Seeley called Maw an incredible danger to the community and revoked the 2015 sentence.

Before his sentencing, Maw apologized to the judge.

"I guess the biggest thing I can say, Your Honor, is I'm sorry for coming in front of you again," he said. "I apologize for it happening and it will not happen again."

Judge Seeley told the court she was sorry she had to sentence him to prison.

"I am sorry to be kind of throwing him away to a degree at this point," she said. "But I have to look at the greater good in this case and the greater good tells me that they have to be protected. We all have to be protected."

Maw will be eligible for parole in about nine years.
