Red Fawn has accepted a non-cooperating plea agreement. On January 22, 2018 her change of plea was accepted by the judge. Sentencing has been set for June 25, 2018 at 1:30 PM in Bismarck federal court before Chief Judge Daniel Hovland.
Under the agreement, the Discharge of a Firearm charge will be dismissed and prosecutors will recommend a sentence of no more than seven years in prison on the remaining two charges, although the judge does have the authority to go as high as 10 years. There is no minimum sentence.
Red Fawn has been moved to the Burleigh/Morton County Detention Center in Bismarck where she will remain until sentencing, and then after sentencing as she waits to be transferred to the federal facility where she will serve out the rest of her sentence.
