Former Coeur D’Alene Tribal Employee Admits To Theft

COEUR D'ALENE - Angeline Morago George, 37, of Plummer, Idaho, was sentenced yesterday to seven months in prison followed by three years of supervised release for theft from a tribal organization, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced. Chief U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill also ordered George to pay $4,176 in restitution, pay a $100 special assessment, and perform 100 hours of community service.

George pleaded guilty on August 30, 2013, to unlawfully using her tribal credit card to get $4,175.26 for her own personal benefit. George’s co-defendant, Billy Moffitt, was previously sentenced to five months incarceration and three years of supervised release.

The case was investigated by the Coeur d’Alene Tribal Police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Office of Inspector General.
