  • Lack of extradition pact frustrates law enforcers

    Great Fall, Montana (AP)

    Missoula County has tried for more than a year to extradite Rodney Gervais Jr. from the Blackfeet Indian Reservation to serve a one-year jail term for partner/family member assault.

    But the Blackfeet Tribe has refused to turn him over.

    Gervais returned to Browning after he was accused of violating probation, and state officials can’t arrest him unless the tribe gives its consent. Blackfeet officials point out the reservation has sovereign status, and the tribe is under no obligation to extradite suspects.
