Amos Tee Receives 75 month prison sentence

(THE DALLES, Ore.) – Wasco County District Attorney Matthew Ellis announced that 23-year-old Amos Tee received a 75 month prison sentence after pleading guilty to four counts of attempted assault in the first degree.  

The resolution of this case resulted after a judicial settlement conference conducted on January 27, 2021.    

By pleading guilty, Tee admitted to attempting to cause serious physical injury to four separate victims.  

On April 9th, 2020 Mr. Tee engaged in a verbal altercation with several people. He returned to the scene of the altercation shortly after and shot at the people assembled. His girlfriend and co-defendant, Cecilia Lawrence, assisted him by driving him to the location. Everyone has since recovered from the assault. Ms. Lawrence previously pled guilty. 

This case was complicated by the number of people involved and by the evasive measures that Mr. Tee undertook. A coordinated investigation involving both the State and City swiftly and efficiently identified the perpetrators and brought them under arrest. The district attorney’s office would like to give particular recognition to Sergeants Macnab and Ell of The Dalles City Police for their hard work in taking the lead in this investigation. 

In addition to the prison sentence, the court placed Tee on 36 months of post-prison supervision.  If he violates conditions put in place by his post-prison supervisor, he could receive further sanctions in the future.

This case was settled by Wasco County Chief Deputy District Attorney Kara Davis.
