4 Face Prison In Crow Creek Tribal Bribery Case

March 30, 2010, 9:27 AM

SIOUX FALLS, SD - Three Crow Creek Tribe officials and a Fort Pierre contractor have pleaded guilty to federal charges related to a bribery and retaliation case on the reservation. Each faces up to 10 years in prison.

Archie Baumann, owner of First Dakota Enterprises of Fort Pierre, pleaded guilty to one count of bribery for attempting to influence the three officials, all of Fort Thompson.

Vice Chairman Randy Shields and Treasurer Norman Thompson Sr. each pleaded guilty to a count of bribery.

Secretary Thomas Thompson Sr. pleaded guilty to a count of retaliation against Tribal Chairman Brandon Sazue, who wore a wire to feed law officers with information on the case.

Court documents say Baumann was trying to win a $383,000 contract to build homes on the reservation.
