Court documents show the case involves unlawful spending of over $81,000 from Big Coulee District, a political subdivision of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate tribe.
Carrie Godfrey, Gerald Heminger Jr. and Colette White pleaded guilty this week to conspiracy to commit theft.
Godfrey's plea agreement says she'll pay over $31,000 in restitution to the tribe. Heminger and White will pay the tribe over $5,000 each.
Gerald German Jr. pleaded guilty to theft from a tribal organization. He agreed to pay nearly $17,000 to Big Coulee and $63,000 to the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate. The second payment is in connection to a separate case.
They're scheduled for sentencing in August.
