Last Defendant Sentenced For Defrauding Programs

Last Defendant Sentenced For Defrauding Programs
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A fourth defendant accused of stealing funds that belonged to the Oglala Sioux Tribe has been sentenced in the case.

45-year-old Wayne Cortier pleaded guilty in March to theft concerning programs receiving federal funds. A judge earlier this week ordered Cortier to serve one year of probation.

35-year-old Joe Garcia and 33-year-old Samone Milk were each sentenced earlier to more than a year in prison. 31-year-old Heather Garcia received five years of probation.

More than $110,000 in restitution was ordered among the defendants.

Milk was the executive secretary for a tribal energy assistance program and Heather Garcia was a technician in the tribe's accounts payable department. Joe Garcia and Cortier were contractors for the tribe.

Authorities say the defendants drafted fake invoices for contract work that was never performed.
