James Wayne Pedro senior is accused of using his position on the tribes' business committee to illegally take nearly 200-thousand dollars in casino money. Prosecutors say he gave the money to "select individuals" and family members.

Prosecutors say Pedro is expected to plead guilty to the charges in the next few weeks.
