Probation, restitution ordered in tribal embezzlement case
ROSEBUD, S.D. (AP) — The former director of the Rosebud Sioux tribal ranch has been sentenced to probation for embezzling from the program.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office says 66-year-old Patricia Jones was ordered to pay $23,000 in restitution besides serving 2 years of probation.
Court documents say Jones embezzled from the tribal ranch between April 2015 and March 2016 and used the money for her personal use.
The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
