The Justice Department received resources to bring on 33 prosecutors to handle cases in Indian Country, Attorney General Eric Holder announced Tuesday. The DOJ will use $6 million from its fiscal 2010 budget to hire Assistant U.S. Attorneys for 21 U.S. Attorney’s offices, which prosecute crimes that occur on American Indian reservations.
