Criminal charges expected in Navajo Nation Council fraud case





Criminal charges are likely in a fraud case involving current and former members of the Navajo Nation Council, the Associated Press reports.

Originally, 85 people faced civil charges for the use of $36 million in discretionary funds. Some cases were settled or dismissed but about 10 to 15 people could face criminal charges.

The Rothstein Law Firm is handling the case, having taken it over from Alan Balaran, the former special master in the Indian trust fund lawsuit.
