According to The Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation tribal attorney Brent Leonhard, the statute also does not allow tribes to prosecute some crimes seen in conjunction with domestic violence, including when children are victimized. “The law was tailored specifically to address issues of domestic violence involving spouses or intimate partners, giving the ability to local tribal law enforcement to address acts violence before they escalate to more serious crimes,” said Do J spokesman Wyn Hornbuckle. Government Accountability Office, tribal governments referred 2,594 sexual abuse related cases to U. “The federal government doesn’t have to take cases,” said Sharon Jones Hayden, a tribal prosecutor that has worked closely with the Tulalip Tribes, one of those that has complied with the statute’s regulations since its initial pilot testing. The choice may not be between tribal court, state court or federal court.
“Governments have a moral obligation to ensure the safety of their citizens and residents,” Leonhard said. However, a government cannot ensure public safety if it is forced to be dependent on foreign governments to prosecute crimes.” These major crimes would be handled predominantly by the FBI and U. “Under the Major Crimes Act and other federal statutes, rape, sexual assault, child molestation, and human trafficking involving non-Indians and Indians alike are prosecutable in federal court.” “U. Attorney’s offices often work in partnership with tribal prosecutors and investigators to determine the best path for prosecuting and deterring crime on reservations,” he said. The choice may be between tribal court and no court at all.” For Umatilla member Taryn Minthorn, it was tribal court that brought her a sense of closure.
