Ex-tribal lending leaders face new charges of fraud, bribery


HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Two former leaders of an online lending company owned by Montana's Chippewa Cree Tribe have pleaded not guilty to new criminal charges that accuse them of funneling money from the company, through a business partner in Nevada and into their own pockets.

The grand jury indictment made public Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Great Falls charges Neal Rosette and Billi Anne Morsette with eight criminal counts that include conspiracy to defraud the tribe, accepting bribes and evading taxes.
