Chief of First Nations organization sentenced for drunken driving





Guy Lonechild, the chief of the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations, was sentenced on an impaired drunken diving charge on Tuesday.

Lonechild was fined $1,150 and was banned from driving for a year for the September 2009 incident, which took place prior to his election as chief of FSIN.

Some tribal leaders have called on Lonechild to resign but he said he will stay in office and educate others about the perils of drinking and driving.
