A former doctor with the Indian Health Service at Pine Ridge already facing charges of sexual abuse of minor patients there has now been indicted on similar charges in Montana.
Doctor Stanley Patrick Weber of Spearfish was indicted by a federal grand jury of two counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, one count each of attempted aggravated sexual abuse of a child, attempted sexual abuse of a minor and abusive sexual contact of a minor.
Court documents say those charges stem from incidents that allegedly happened between 1993 and 1995 while he was working on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation.
The first two counts accuse Weber of engaging in a sexual act with a boy under twelve years of age and could lead to a life prison term if he's convicted.
He's pleaded not guilty to all of those charges.
