SBS: North Dakota: Harriet Rose Feather

February 15, 2011,

 U.S. Attorney Timothy Q. Purdon announced that on Feb. 14, Harriet Rose Feather of Tokio, N.D., was sentenced before U.S. District Court Judge Ralph R. Erickson on a charge of felony child abuse.
Feather, 31, pleaded guilty on Dec. 3, 2010, to beating her 4-year-old son.  The incident occurred in August 2010 on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation.
Feather was on supervised release for a previous child abuse conviction in 2005 for shaking an 18-month-old child so violently he suffered shaken baby syndrome. The medical bills were more than $60,000 for the injures she inflicted on that child.
Erickson sentenced Feather to seven years in prison to be followed by three years of supervised release. Feather was ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Crime Victim's Fund.
Feather was also ordered to pay $2,869 in medical restitution.
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Bureau of Indian Affairs and Spirit Lake Tribal Social Services.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Janice M. Morley prosecuted the case.
