Thursday, January 27, 2005
More charges were filed in the corruption scandal involving former leaders of the Kickapoo Tribe of Texas.
A federal grand jury added charges against six people previously accused of stealing more than $900,000 from the tribe. The new charges include conspiring to oppress, threaten and intimidate members of the tribe who opposed former chairman Raul Garza and his non-Indian associates.
Also, a seventh person was indicted -- Isidro Xavier Garza, the eldest son of Isidro Garza Jr.., the tribe's non-Indian former manager.
The new leadership of the tribe called for the investigation of Garza and his allies.
