Woman indicted for embezzling from tribal fund


A federal grand jury has indicted the former director of the tribe’s Sequoyah Fund on charges she embezzled nearly $1 million from the nonprofit.

The indictment was filed Dec. 1 in U.S. District Court.

Nell Leatherwood, who headed the lending agency from February 2006 through November 2013, faces 50 criminal counts; 47 of those counts are connected to individual checks she’s accused of having forged.
