Feds will be able to prosecute more crimes on the Mille Lacs Reservation


The U.S. Department of Justice announced Tuesday it will assume concurrent jurisdiction to prosecute major crimes on the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe's reservation next year.

The DOJ already has jurisdiction to prosecute crimes such as drug trafficking wherever they occur in the U.S., including on the Mille Lacs Reservation, a DOJ release said.

The new power will allow federal prosecution of crimes such as murder, rape, felony assault and felony child abuse.
