Billings man Barry Allan Beach was picked back up by the Montana Department of Corrections Adult Probation and Parole. According to Katie Weston of the Billings Probation and Parole who sent a letter to the Justice Court is reads as follows:
“Barry Beach needs to appear in Justice Court tomorrow, Thursday 11/10/2016, for a courtesy bond for a Probation Violation. He was convicted of Deliberate Homicide on 5/``/1984 by the Honorable Judge J. Sorte in Cause 1068C In Roosevelt County. He received a 100 year sentence with no chance for Parole. On November 20, 2015, the Governor of Montana granted clemency to the defendant and he was released from the Montana State Prison with a new sentence of time served plus 10 years suspended.
The violation is as follows:
On October 28, 2016, the defendant was served a restraining order by the Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Department. The order required the defendant to stay 300 feet away from the complainant at all times. On Nov 6, 2016, the complainant filed a report with the Billings Police Department alleging that the defendant had violated the restraining order; a warrant request was sent to the City Attorney by the Office on scene. This Officer has confirmed with the City Attorney that he will be charged with this violation. Paperwork was submitted today, 11/9/2016, and the defendant can be served 11/10/2016. This will be a misdemeanor charge.
The defendant has exercised very poor judgment by violating the restraining order while also wearing a GPS monitoring system imposed by the DOC from a prior sanction.
Bond recommendation: $50,000.00 w/a condition for a GPS to ensure the complainants safety (the DOC cannot impose this sanction once the defendant has entered revocation, as he now has.) “
