Former Pine Ridge doctor sentenced for child sex abuse

RAPID CITY, S.D. – A former Indian Health Service pediatrician has been sentenced for sexually abusing Native American children while on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota.

Seventy-one-year-old Stanley Patrick Weber of Spearfish was sentenced Monday in federal court to five consecutive life sentences for five aggravated sexual abuse charges.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Weber also was sentenced to 15 years on each of three counts of sexual abuse of a minor.

Weber was sentenced last year to 18 years in prison for similar crimes against boys on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Montana.

Weber also was ordered to pay $800,000 in fines.
