Standing Rock Man Sentenced For Payment Scam

Pierre, SD

A member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has been sentenced to a year of probation and fined $500 for embezzlement and theft.

46-year-old Dana Fast Horse was accused of a scam last October to illegally get a $4,000 government payment and split it with a woman he enlisted to help him. He was a district vice chairman for the tribe at the time.

The woman alerted authorities and helped them catch the Little Eagle man in a sting operation.

South Dakota U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says Fast Horse pleaded guilty earlier this year and was sentenced this week.
