A tribal chairman’s teenage son, once accused of conspiring with a 16-year-old friend who killed nine people on the Red Lake Indian Reservation, was sentenced behind closed doors Friday on a lesser charge of sending threatening messages.
The sentence for Louis Jourdain, 17, wasn’t revealed, and his father, Floyd Jourdain Jr., said he would not disclose it.
“The judge’s ruling will reflect what I’ve said all along … my son is a good kid,” the elder Jourdain said.
Attorneys left the court without commenting.
I’ll let you know if the sentence itself ever becomes known.
