SIOUX FALLS, SD - Three Crow Creek Tribe officials and a Fort Pierre contractor have pleaded guilty to federal charges related to a bribery and retaliation case on the reservation. Each faces up to 10 years in prison.

Archie Baumann, owner of First Dakota Enterprises of Fort Pierre, pleaded guilty to one count of bribery for attempting to influence the three officials, all of Fort Thompson.
