Fort Totten Man Sentenced for Involuntary Manslaughter

FARGO - U.S. Attorney Timothy Q. Purdon announced that on May 29, 2013, Louis John Dunn of Fort Totten, N.D., was sentenced before U.S. District Judge Ralph R. Erickson on a charge of involuntary manslaughter. Dunn pleaded guilty to the charge on March 6, 2013.

Judge Erickson sentenced Dunn to three years’ and five months’ imprisonment to be followed by three years of supervised release. Dunn was ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Crime Victim's Fund. Restitution will be determined at a later date.

On Oct. 12, 2012, Dunn, 36, while driving under the influence of alcohol, drove into the lane of on-coming traffic, striking the vehicle driven by Andrew Greywater who subsequently died from the injuries he received in the crash. The incident occurred on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Janice M. Morley prosecuted the case.
