WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. (AP) — Thirteen former Navajo Nation lawmakers are among 15 defendants scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday in Window Rock for their involvement in misusing the tribe's discretionary fund.

Each of the 13 former tribal council delegates and two former legislative staffers will be sentenced separately in Window Rock District Court.

Prosecutors say the delegates abused a financial assistance program designed to help tribal members facing hard times.
