A former Crow Creek tribal council member has been sentenced on accusations he concealed information from authorities investigating a bribery conspiracy on the South Dakota reservation.
Loren "Rocky" Fallis pleaded guilty earlier to misprision of a felony. The U.S. attorney's office says the 58-year-old Fallis lied about a meeting in October 2008 where a contractor allegedly divided cash between several current and former members of the council.
U.S. District Judge Roberto Lange sentenced Fallis to one month in custody.
The U.S. attorney's office says the case is the last involving corruption and bribery on the reservation. Four other participants in the 2008 meeting were sentenced earlier to prison terms ranging from 15 months to 10 years.
