Tribe now can prosecute non-Natives for domestic violence
By Jennifer Bowman

Research by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University found the federal government in 2011 declined to pursue criminal charges in more than half of cases "involving the most serious crimes committed on Indian reservations," the New York Times reported in February 2012. The newspaper reported that they decided against rape charges in 65 percent of cases and against charges of sexual abuse of children 61 percent of the time.
