Tribes Get Prosecutors for Violence Against Women
OMAHA -- The Winnebago Tribe in northeast Nebraska will be awarded a cooperative agreement with the federal Justice Department to designate tribal prosecutors to pursue cases of violence against women in both tribal and federal courts. The Justice Department's Office on Violence Against Women announced Tuesday the agreements with the Nebraska tribe and three others in South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana and New Mexico. The federal office will help cover salary, travel and training costs of the tribal special U.S. attorneys. The program enables the new tribal prosecutors to bring cases of violence against women in federal court and to serve as co-counsel with federal prosecutors on felony cases from within their tribal communities.
