Idaho woman pleads guilty to theft conspiracy

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -- A former employee of the Coeur d'Alene Tribal Authority has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit theft from a tribal organization.
U.S. Attorney Wendy Olson announced in a prepared statement that 36-year-old Angeline Morago George pleaded guilty to the charge Friday in federal court.
Prosecutors said George was issued a credit card related to her duties as a Tribal Housing Authority employee, and that in February she and 26-year-old Billy E. Moffitt drove to Washington where George purchased more than $4,000 in money orders from payday loan stores that they then used for personal benefit.
Moffitt pleaded guilty to the charge earlier this month. Both face up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 when they are sentenced later this year.
