Former Sisseton tribal administrator must repay $32,000 she stole

Sioux Falls, South Dakota (AP) 3-08

A former school administrator with the Sisseton-Wahpeton Tribe has been sentenced to five years of probation and ordered to repay $32,390 she stole from an education endowment program.

Jacquelyn DeMarrias, 42, of Sisseton was the administrator and manager of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Higher Education Endowment Program, which provides grants and other financial aid to students.

While in that position between August 2004 and October 2005, she “funneled money from the program to herself and others,” according to federal prosecutors.

DeMarrias pleaded guilty to embezzlement and theft from an Indian tribal organization and has been sentenced.
