BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Sentencing has been rescheduled for a Denver woman who pleaded guilty in a shooting during protests in North Dakota against the Dakota Access oil pipeline.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland was unable to oversee the scheduled Monday sentencing for Red Fawn Fallis for reasons the court did not disclose. Court documents show the sentencing is now set for July 11 in Bismarck.

Authorities accused Fallis of firing a handgun three times while resisting arrest in October 2016 in southern North Dakota. No one was hurt. She pleaded guilty Jan. 22 to civil disorder and a weapons charge.

Prosecutors are recommending seven years in prison, though Hovland can go as high as 15 years.
