Former Northern Arapaho Employee Sentenced
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A former payroll clerk for the Northern Arapaho tribe’s Department of Social Services has been sentenced to a year in prison after she was convicted of embezzling money from the organization.
Thirty-three-year-old Amanda Addison of the Wind River Indian Reservation was sentenced Friday in federal court in Cheyenne. She was sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison, followed by three years’ supervised release.
Addison was convicted in July of embezzlement for her role in a scheme authorities say skimmed money from the organization.
Federal District Court Judge Alan B. Johnson has ruled restitution is required in the case, with a separate hearing to address the amount yet to be scheduled.
