Pension Revoked For Ex-IHS Doctor Convicted Of Abusing Boys On Pine Ridge Reservation

      The Indian Health Service says the former pediatrician serving life without parole for sexually abusing boys on the Pine Ridge Reservation and the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana has been stripped of his estimated $100,000-a-year pension. 

       Stanley Weber was convicted in Montana and South Dakota on numerous charges, including aggravated sexual abuse, for incidents that happened on the reservations  three decades ago

        Congressmen Dusty Johnson of South Dakota and Greg Gianforte of Montana, the only members of the House from their states, had asked the Indian Health Service last summer to review Weber’s record. 

       Johnson says he’s glad that the IHS took the request seriously and revoked Weber’s pension.
