Bemidji Pioneer: ND pipeline protester accused of shooting at officers set to change plea

FARGO — An organization providing legal support for Dakota Access Pipeline protesters has reported that attorneys for Red Fawn Fallis, charged with shooting a handgun at officers during the protests, have reached a plea agreement with prosecutors that would result in her receiving less than the maximum penalty.

Fallis, an Oglala Sioux who grew up in Colorado, will plead guilty to two charges, civil disorder and possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon, in return for the government dropping the most serious charge, discharge of a firearm in relation to a felony crime of violence, the Water Protector Legal Collective said in a news release.
