Federal Judge Orders IHS To Release Report On Doctor Who Molested Boys On the Pine Ridge Reservation

     A federal judge has ordered the Indian Health Service to release a report investigating how one of its doctors was able to sexually abuse boys on Indian reservations in South Dakota and Montana. 

     Former pediatrician Dr Stanley Patrick Weber is serving lengthy prison terms after being convicted last year of multiple counts of sexual abuse in cases dating back decades on the Pine Ridge Reservation and of similar charges a year earlier on the  Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Montana.

        The IHS commissioned a report on how the agency failed to protect Indigenous children from the doctor, but declined requests to release the report publicly.
