Ex-California tribal official pleads guilty, quits teaching


SACRAMENTO — The former administrator of a Sacramento-area Indian tribe has quit his job as a business instructor at American River College after pleading guilty to helping steal more than $17 million in a kickback scheme.

Los Rios Community College District human resources official Ryan Cox tells The Sacramento Bee that the college has accepted Gregory Baker's resignation, which takes effect Dec. 18.

Baker was put on administrative leave after pleading guilty Nov. 5. Prosecutors say he took kickbacks and approved inflated invoices from a contractor who was working on a massive tribal building project.
