The Justice Department, n early February, recommended that all charges against 50 persons nvolved in the 1973 occupation of Wounded Knee be dropped. Assistant U.S. Attomey Keith Uhl told Judge Andrew Bogue that the defendents were not involved n leadership positions during the seige-and that the government now believes there s not enough evidence to prosecute them. If Bogue grants the dismissals, only 12 other Wounded Knee cases remain to be tried.
