Three people found guilty of child neglect on the Red Lake Reservation

According to United States Department of Justice, three people living on the Red Lake Indian Reservation have been convicted of felony child neglect.

According to U.S. Attorney Andrew M. Luger, evidence shows that between February 2022 and January 2023, Robin John Roy, Nicole Robyn Roy, and Harrison Edwin Dudley Sr, deprived children of food, clothing, shelter, health care, and supervision although they had the ability to do so. This neglect caused harm to the victims’ physical, metal, and emotional health.

After a six-day trial, all three were found guilty of felony child neglect on February 16, 2024. Nicole Roy and Harrison Dudley Sr. were also found guilty of felony child endangerment.

This case came about through a FBI investigation. Sentencing hearings will be scheduled at a later time.
