2nd man sentenced for tribal embezzlement

Minneapolis, Minnesota (AP) February 2011

A Brainerd man has been sentenced for embezzling more than $600,000 from the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe.

A federal judge sentenced 31-year-old Eric Makowski to 2-and-a-half years in prison on one count of embezzlement from a tribal organization.

Makowski was a construction project manager for the band. In his plea agreement, he admitted that between 2005 and June 2007 he coordinated fraudulent and excessive payments to contractors, then arranged kickbacks from a vendor.

Last month, 33-year-old Jason Heinlen of Belle Plaine was sentenced to five years of probation for aiding and abetting the embezzlement.
