US Attorney From ND Testifies On Indian Report

February 12, 2014, 3:20 PM


The U.S attorney from North Dakota says federal prosecutors are working to break the cycle of violence and hopelessness on Indian reservations with programs meant to reach young people.

Timothy Purdon appeared Wednesday in front of the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs. He was asked to testify on a new report entitled "A Roadmap For Making Native America Safer."

Purdon noted that Gary Delorme, an assistant U.S. attorney in North Dakota, makes regular presentations at lyceums on the Standing Rock high school and middle school. Purdon said it is making a difference outside of the courtroom.

Purdon said federal prosecutors in South Dakota are trying to keep the less serious juvenile offenders under the supervision of tribal court for as long as possible in order to foster rehabilitation.
