Red Fawn was arrested during a raid at Standing Rock, the blockade against the Dakota Access Pipeline, on Oct 27th, 2016, for allegedly firing shots at deputies from the Pennington County S.D. sheriff’s department. Supporters say that she didn’t have a gun and the officers, who considered her an instigator, unjustly targeted her for arrest. Red Fawn is an Oglala Lakota Sioux and American Indian Movement member with family roots in the organization. An indictment filed on January 5th charges Red Fawn with felony counts of civil disorder and discharging a firearm in relation to a felony crime of violence — which, in this case, is civil disorder. These charges are in addition to an earlier charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Fallis has pleaded not guilty.
Fallis remains in custody and her trial date was scheduled for spring/summer 2017, but has been postponed until December 5th, 2017. If convicted of discharging the firearm, Fallis faces a minimum of 10 years and up to life in prison. In June, a North Dakota Judge granted Red's release to a Fargo halfway house pending trial, yet she remains in jail until bed space is available.
