Appeals court upholds ex-tribal leader's prison sentence


HELENA, Mont. (AP) — An appeals court has upheld the prison sentence of a former Chippewa Cree tribal chairman.

Bruce Sunchild was sentenced last year to 34 months in prison after he pleaded guilty to theft, accepting a bribe and income tax evasion.

Sunchild sought a lighter sentence, saying the prison term imposed was unreasonable and he was a minor player in the crimes.
