The Montana U.S. Attorneys office has created a new unit to focus on Indian Country crime, The Great Falls Tribune reported.
The unit will have six prosecutors, with Assistant U.S Attorney Lori A. Harper Suek from Billings, a veteran Indian Country prosecutor, as its head.
The other members of the team will be Vince Carroll, Jessica Betley and Laura Weiss, all of Great Falls, Danna Jackson and Mike Wolfe from Helena.
Last week, Montana U.S. Attorney Michael Cotter announced that the new unit would help prosecute crime on American Indian reservations.
