RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - Julian Bear Runner remains the president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe.

The tribal council needed a two-thirds vote or 14 votes to impeach.

However, the 11-5 vote didn’t meet the requirement, with five council members not voting.

Testimony Monday focused on a sexual assault claim against Bear Runner.

The alleged victim said that Bear Runner began a relationship with him when he was 17-years-old and that relationship turned sexual after his 18th birthday.

Bear Runner claims the allegations are false.
