PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Two people have pleaded guilty to stealing from the Rosebud Sioux tribe in South Dakota.
Thirty-two-year-old Nathan Janis, from the city of Rosebud, is accused of receiving money through the tribal child care services program to which he was not entitled. Thirty-nine-year-old Barbara Duysak, of Rosebud, faces a similar accusation. She worked as an administrator for the program at the time.
U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says Janis and Duysak both face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine when they are sentenced on Oct. 1.

An item on the Valentine City Council agenda for tonight's regular meeting has caused quite a stir among Valentine residents. Item 17 on the agenda is to review, discuss and take action on eliminating the Valentine Police Department. The police department currently has five employees which are responsible for enforcing statutes within the city limits. City Manager Shane Siewart told KVSH that Mayor Rowdy Kluender asked to have the item placed on the agenda on Tuesday afternoon. Several Valentine residents have been upset at the thought of not having police protection on a level that they are accustomed to. The city council meeting begins at 7pm tonight at the Valentine Library.
