SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Rosebud woman has been sentenced for stealing from the Rosebud Sioux Tribe's child care services program.

Tanya Walking Eagle, 39, pleaded guilty in July to a charge of theft from an Indian tribal organization. She was sentenced in federal court Tuesday to a month behind bars and three years on supervised release.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says Walking Eagle also was ordered to pay $30,304 in restitution.
