Appeals court upholds conviction of Rolette man

Fargo, North Dakota (AP) March 2011

An appeals court has upheld the conviction of a Rolette man accused of possessing a firearm and ammunition while he was a fugitive from justice.

Authorities say Michael Reed left Nevada while there was a warrant for his arrest and returned to North Dakota, where he had access to the weapon. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison after a jury found him guilty in January 2010.

Court documents say Reed is the self-proclaimed attorney general for the Little Shell Nation, an Indian tribe based in Rolette that is not recognized by the federal government.

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected ReedÂ’s claims that the evidence failed to show he possessed the firearm and ammunition, and that the judge made a mistake in instructions to the jury.
