Red Fawn Fallis makes plea agreement in DAPL protest case

By  | 

Attorneys for a Denver woman accused of shooting at law enforcement during the Dakota Access oil pipeline protests say they've reached a deal with prosecutors to avoid a lengthy prison term.

If a judge agrees, Red Fawn Fallis would plead guilty on Monday to civil disorder and gun possession by a convicted felon.

Prosecutors would drop a more serious weapons charge that carries a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and the possibility of life.

Prosecutors also would recommend no more than seven years.

Fallis was supposed to stand trial on Jan. 29.
