Man who stabbed BIA official in back gets 18 years in prison


BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A man accused of stabbing the Bureau of Indian Affairs superintendent in the back on South Dakota's Crow Creek Indian Reservation was sentenced Monday to 18 years in federal prison.

Brian Iron Boulder, 51, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, pleaded guilty in June to attempted murder after authorities said he stabbed Patrick F. Duffy in the back with a knife on March 25, penetrating Duffy's chest wall. Duffy underwent two surgeries at a Sioux Falls hospital and returned to work about two months after being stabbed.
