Oct. 28, 2017
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Denver woman accused of shooting at law enforcement officers during a protest against the Dakota Access pipeline has been moved to a Fargo halfway house to await trial.
The Bismarck Tribune says court documents show marshals were set to transport Red Fawn Fallis from the Stutsman County Correctional Center to Fargo. Chad Jackson, administrator of jail in Jamestown, confirms that Fallis left his facility.
Fallis is due to stand trial beginning Jan. 29 on allegations that she fired a handgun three times as officers tried to arrest her at a protest last year. She has pleaded not guilty to federal charges that include discharge of a firearm in a crime of violence and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Her trial is expected to last 10 days.
