A North Dakota woman who pleaded guilty to stealing from a tribal organization has been sentenced to home monitoring and ordered to pay restitution.
U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon has announced that Tanya Jetty, of Saint Michael, has been sentenced to three months at a residential re-entry center and seven months of electronic home monitoring followed by three years of supervised release. Jetty is also ordered to pay more than $95,000 in restitution.
Jetty pleaded guilty to two charges of conspiracy to embezzle in two separate cases.
Prosecutors say Jetty, who was the Spirit Lake Vocational Rehabilitation Program, misapplied funds from the program to benefit her and her family members. She also applied for heating assistance from the tribe without including the total income of her household.
