Sentencing delayed for former Mashantucket Tribe treasurer





A federal judge delayed sentencing for Steven Thomas, a former treasurer of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation of Connecticut.

Thomas was due to be sentenced on Wednesday. But he won't learn his fate until February 26, The New London Day reported.

Thomas faces 12 to 18 months in prison under a plea agreement with federal prosecutors. He has agreed to pay $177,603 in restitution to the tribe.

Thomas's brother, former chairman Michael Thomas, also was found guilty of stealing from the tribe. He was sentenced to 18 months but is appealing.
