Former tribal council delegate faces sentencing
FARMINGTON — Two defendants who pleaded no contest to allegations of misusing a financial assistance program once operated by the Navajo Nation Council are scheduled for sentencing this week.
A sentencing hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday in Window Rock District Court in Window Rock, Ariz., for former Navajo Nation Council Delegate Lena Manheimer.
Manheimer was charged in December 2013 with one count of conspiracy to commit bribery in official and political matters and six counts of bribery. In April 2015, she pleaded no contest to the conspiracy charge under the terms of a plea agreement.
