OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Another former member of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska council has been sentenced to probation for stealing from the tribe’s Iowa casino.

The Sioux City Journal reports that Darwin Snyder was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Omaha to five years of probation and ordered to pay $36,500 in restitution. Snyder had pleaded guilty to theft from a gaming establishment on Indian lands. Charges of conspiracy and wire fraud were dismissed in exchange for his plea.

Snyder is one of nine former council members accused of a conspiracy to steal money from the WinnaVegas Casino Resort in Sloan, Iowa.
