Las Vegas businessmen sentenced in Rocky Boy corruption case
August 31, 2017
Two Las Vegas businessmen were sentenced to federal prison last week for their work in defrauding millions of dollars from the Chippewa Cree Tribe with the help of a number of tribal officials, to whom they offered bribes. They, as well as the consulting company they used to facilitate tribal corruption, were also ordered to pay millions of dollars in restitution back to the tribe.
Zachary Brooke Roberts and Martin Gasper Mazzara were sentenced Aug. 25 to 20 months in federal prison. U.S. District Judge Brian Morris also ordered them to pay $2.5 million in restitution to the Chippewa Cree tribe, which Roberts and Mazzara schemed to rip off in 2011 through a shell company called Encore Services LLC.
