     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say a Parshall man has been sentenced to five years and four months in prison for sex abuse.  U.S. Attorney Tim Purdon says 24-year-old Richard G. Staples pleaded guilty to sexually abusing an individual incapable of consenting to sexual activity.

    He was sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland.  Purdon says the crime occurred in May 2013 on the Fort Berthold reservation.  Staples is required to register as a sex offender once he's released from prison.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Wisconsin man accused of bringing females to North Dakota's oil patch and forcing them into prostitution has pleaded not guilty in federal court.  KXMB-TV reports that 31-year-old Levell Durr pleaded not guilty to coercion and enticement.
 
     Authorities allege that he used drugs and physical violence to keep the females compliant and at one point kept a girl in a dog kennel for days for breaking one of his rules.  Federal Magistrate Judge Charles Miller set Durr's trial for Sept. 16.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say a Three Affiliated Tribes councilman has been arrested on a probation violation.  Tribal prosecutor Don Bruce tells the Bismarck Tribune that Councilman Barry Benson is in jail at the tribe's justice center in New Town, on the Fort Berthold reservation.
 
     Tribal magistrate Evan Burr says Benson was arrested July 4 for failing to appear for drug and alcohol testing as mandated in his probation on an earlier offense.  Authorities say additional felony drug charges are pending.
 
     The 51-year-old Benson represents the Twin Buttes segment of the reservation.  Diana Tomlin, the secretary of the Twin Buttes' Elder Organization, says Benson has not resigned from his tribal council position and conducts tribal business from jail.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Investigators say the body of a woman who was raped and murdered on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation was not discovered until a month after a drunk and agitated witness told police she was lying in tall grass west of Fort Yates.
 
     Twenty-nine-year-old Lance Summers, of Fort Yates, has pleaded not guilty to murder and sexual abuse in the slaying of 38-year-old Natalie White Lightening of Cannon Ball.  White Lightening was last seen on March 17. Her body was discovered on April 22 by two people walking through the heavily vegetated area.
 
     A recently unsealed affidavit says a 17-year-old boy who had been drinking with Summers that day told police there was a woman lying in the field.   Officers searched the area in darkness and were unable to find anyone.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Passenger numbers in June at North Dakota's eight commercial service airports were up more than 6 percent over the same month a year ago.  The North Dakota Aeronautics Commission says there were 99,658 boardings in the month, an increase of 5,992 passengers from June 2013.
 
     The month marked the first time that all eight airports have been able to offer jet service. Devils Lake and Jamestown added jets to Denver on June 5.  Aeronautics Commission director Kyle Wanner says air service has never been better in North Dakota.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Soldiers with the North Dakota Army National Guard will conduct training exercises at Kimball Bottoms south of Bismarck.  The Guard says Kimball Bottoms will be closed on Saturday during the 957th Engineer Company's training.  More than 120 Soldiers will be at the site on the Missouri River.

    The recreational area, including the off-highway vehicle trails, will be closed.  The Missouri River in the area will remain open, but boaters are urged to use caution.

     TAYLOR, N.D. (AP) - Many cities have their Octoberfest but only Taylor has a Horsefest.  The southwestern North Dakota community of about 150 people is preparing for its 21st celebration of the horse, scheduled for July 26.  The Horsefest features horse-drawn machinery and a parade of horse-drawn vehicles. Motorized vehicles are prohibited from the parade.
 
     Horsefest is popular with North Dakota politicians but some have had problems at the event.  In 2006, former Congressman Earl Pomeroy was able to finish the horseback parade ride with a skinned lip and swollen nose after he fell off his mount.
 
     In 2000, when former Gov. John Hoeven was making his first run for the office, he suffered a gash and black eye when a horse rammed a metal piece of its bridle into Hoeven's forehead.
