Critic of South Dakota foster care arrested on old charge - The Washington Post


Critic of South Dakota foster care arrested on old charge - The Washington Post: She was released from the Hughes County jail Wednesday afternoon pending an Oct. 6 sentencing.

Howe’s husband, Louis Adrian, told the Pierre Capital Journal that the couple was returning from Fort Thompson to their home on the Crow Creek reservation on July 13 when they drove into a checkpoint arrest involving tribal police, U.S. marshals and Hughes County deputies.

Adrian said he believes South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley pursued the arrest because of Howe’s outspokenness against the state.

Rabern said Jackley wasn’t South Dakota’s attorney general when the case was initiated and the prosecutor on the case has since moved on to private practice.

Howe, a former public health nurse, was featured in a 2011 National Public Radio investigation that reported that state officials removed hundreds of Native American children each year, sometimes in questionable circumstances, while failing to place the children with their relatives or tribes.
