Red Fawn Fallis

Red Fawn Fallis is Oglala Lakota

On July 11, 2018 Red Fawn was sentenced to 57 months pursuant to the terms of  a non-cooperating plea agreement accepted by the court  on January 22, 2018. In exchange for a guilty plea to the charge of Civil Disorder and Possession of a Firearm and Ammunition by a Convicted Felon, the charge of Discharge of a Firearm in Relation to a Felony Crime of Violence was dismissed. Had Fallis gone to trial and been convicted of this charge, she’d have faced a minimum of 10 years and risked up to life in prison. She was sentenced to 18 months on the Civil Disorder charge and to a concurrent term of 57 months on the Possession charge and is in  FCI Dublin, California.
