Former tribal lending executives charged with embezzlement


HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Two former executives of an online lending company owned by the Chippewa Cree Tribe embezzled more than $55,000 by funneling the money through the company to themselves and an ex-councilman who was previously convicted of corruption, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Neal Rosette and Billi Anne Morsette pleaded not guilty Tuesday to embezzlement and conspiracy charges in U.S. District Court in Great Falls.
