Update: Former Oklahoma Tribal Leader Sentenced In $107K Embezzlement Case

Emily Anne Saupitty, 53, of Apache, Oklahoma, the former tribal treasurer for the Apache Tribe, was sentenced last week to 27 months in prison for embezzling more than $107,000 from the tribe. Saupitty was convicted last December on 33 fraud counts of embezzling tribal funds. She used the money for personal expenses, including travel and a computer as well as to "spread money around to gain political support as she ran for tribal offices,” according to prosecutors. Between 2003 and 2004, Saupitty deposited 8 checks from tribal funds into her own bank account amounting to $107,627.65.
