Doctor convicted of abusing Blackfeet boys to be sentenced

December 18, 2018

GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — A former Indian Health Service pediatrician convicted of sexually abusing young boys on Montana’s Blackfeet Indian Reservation two decades ago will be sentenced in January.

In September, a jury found Stanley Patrick Weber guilty of sexual abuse and attempted sexual abuse of children under age 14 when he worked in Browning between 1992 and 1995.

The Great Falls Tribune reports his sentencing hearing in U.S. District Court in Great Falls was pushed back from Dec. 13 to Jan. 17 after his attorney said Weber may provide information that could affect the sentence.

Prosecutors say the 69-year-old Weber remains unapologetic and shows no remorse for his victims even after his conviction. They are recommending a prison sentence of 19 ½ years followed by 17 years supervised release and a $200,000 fine.
