Three local people appeared recently in U.S. District Court in Great Falls in separate criminal cases.
A woman from Rocky Boy pleaded guilty Wednesday to federal drug charges. A Havre man suspected of dealing methamphetamine pleaded guilty last Thursday.
Also, a Rocky Boy man was sentenced to prison time for theft.
Prosecutors said Corrina Saddler intended to sell methamphetamine on the Rocky Boy's Indian Reservation in May. She was arrested after an investigation by the FBI.
Saddler faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine.
In the second case, Travis Hawk, 25, changed his plea to guilty last Thursday on the charge of possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. Hawk, who will be sentenced April 12, also faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine.
Hawk admitted to selling meth in two separate drug deals at the Legion Field Park and in Beaver Creek Park in May.
In the third case, Samuel Roasting Stick, 31, of Rocky Boy was sentenced to six months in jail, three years of supervised release and ordered to pay $12,970 in restitution after pleading guilty to a December 1999 theft at Rocky Boy's Indian Reservation.
Roasting Stick was also sentenced to 50 hours of community service.
In December 1999, Roasting Stick and several other people took about $29,000 worth of property from a Rocky Boy residence, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Lori Harper Suek.
