In The Moment ... February 12, 2019 Show 514 Hour 1

Dr. Stanley Patrick Weber was sent to work at the Indian Health Services facility in Pine Ridge after gaining an ugly and suspicious reputation at his previous IHS medical position in Browning, Montana on the Blackfeet Reservation. By the time he arrived in South Dakota, he had already been accused of sexually molesting multiple Native American boys.

A new FRONTLINE and Wall Street Journal investigation explores the case against Weber and uncovers the failure to stop the government doctor from preying on the young men in his care.

Wall Street Journal reporter and FRONTLINE correspondent Christopher Weaver previews Predator on the Reservation. It airs on FRONTLINE Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. Central on SDPB-TV.
