Woman Sentenced For Stealing From Tribal Police

pierre, sd

An Eagle Butte woman has been sentenced for stealing from the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Police Department when she worked there.

Forty-one-year-old Kristi Lawrence was given three months in federal custody and six months of home confinement, to be followed by three years of supervised release. She also must pay nearly $88,000 in restitution.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says Lawrence manipulated timesheets over a two-year period starting October 2012 to obtain unauthorized overtime pay. She pleaded guilty last December to a charge of theft from an Indian tribal organization.
