Rosebud man sentenced for driving drunk with child in vehicle

A South Dakota man has been sentenced to a year in federal prison for driving drunk with a 2-year-old child in the vehicle.

Thirty-six-year-old Colton Poorman, of Rosebud, pleaded guilty in July to operating a motor vehicle under the influence with a minor present in the vehicle.

The incident happened in October of 2015. Authorities say the child was not placed in safety restraints.

At the time of his arrest, Poorman had been on federal supervised release for a previous felony conviction.


Rosebud man pleads not guilty to murder charge in April shooting

A South Dakota man has pleaded not guilty to a second-degree murder charge stemming from a fatal shooting that took place in April on the Rosebud Indian Reservation.

The office of U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says 18-year-old Jacob McCloskey, of St. Francis, entered his plea earlier this week. He is also charged with witness tampering and using and carrying a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.

Court records show McCloskey is accused of shooting Rhannon Joseph Kills Plenty with a rifle on April 7 and then persuading two witnesses to lie about the circumstances of the shooting. Public records do not provide additional details.

McCloskey's trial is scheduled for Nov. 15. His attorney didn't immediately return a call seeking comment on the case Friday.

IHS accountability bill approved by US Senate committee

South Dakota's U.S. senators say a bill that has passed through a Senate committee would help ensure Native Americans receive quality care from the Indian Health Service.

The Senate Committee on Indian Affairs on Wednesday approved the bill introduced by South Dakota U.S. Sen. John Thune and Sen. John Barrasso, a Republican from Wyoming.

The bill aims to increase transparency and accountability at the IHS and improve recruiting and retention practices at the often remote hospitals, issues the agency has struggled with for several years.

Thune, a Republican, says officials shouldn't shy away from the difficult work required to ensure tribal members receive quality care. GOP U.S. Sen. Mike Rounds of South Dakota says the plan is a step toward fixing the "broken IHS system."

The measure heads to the full Senate.
