A jury has convicted a woman of conspiracy and embezzlement of Cheyenne-Arapaho tribal funds derived from the Lucky Star Casinos.

Renee Island of Calument faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

She was accused of conspiring with unnamed co-conspirators to embezzle net gaming revenues generated by the Lucky Star Casinos by directing checks drawn on tribal accounts to be transferred via Western Union to Nevada and New Mexico.

Evidence showed five separate transfers totaling $15,900 of tribal funds were embezzled between January and September 2003.
