Second person sentenced for theft from tribe

A second person was sentenced to prison for stealing from the Assiniboine and Gros Ventre tribes of Montana.

Roxanne Gone, 54, was given 1.5 years in prison and ordered to pay restitution. A similar punishment was handed to Gregory Morris Powderface, 36, earlier this week.

Gone and Powderface took money from the tribe's investment accounts, prosecutors said. Both pleaded guilty to the crime.
