Wyoming Woman Charged with Conversion of Moneys from an Indian Tribal Organization

June 11, 2013

United States Attorney Christopher A. Crofts announced today that Joanne Lynn Seesequasis, the former executive director for the Eastern Shoshone Housing Authority, appeared in federal court on June 10, 2013, for an arraignment. Ms. Seesequasis appeared with counsel and pled not guilty to the indictment charging conversion of moneys from an Indian Tribal organization, in violation 18 U.S.C. §1163. Ms. Seesequasis’ trial will be held on August 19, 2013, in Cheyenne, Wyoming before Chief United States District Court Judge Nancy Freudenthal. This case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Office of Inspector General.
An indictment is only an accusation. In every criminal case, the accused is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty, and the government always has the burden of proving guilt at trial beyond a reasonable doubt.
