8 Ute Mountain Ute tribal members embezzle $770,247 from tribe

Eight members of the Ute Mountain Ute tribe in southwest Colorado have pleaded guilty to embezzling or laundering $770,247 from the tribe in an elaborate scam over a four-year period.

In some instances the conspirators sent tribal money — some of which came from the U.S. government — to federal prison inmates who were not members of the tribe.
