RAPID CITY (AP) - A Rapid City woman accused of defrauding the federal government has pleaded not guilty.

Thirty-five-year-old Melissa Dale is accused of receiving treatment at an Indian Health Service facility in Rapid City last September after registering under a false name and false Social Security number.
