A former Blackfeet tribal chairman has been indicted on charges of theft and fraud in connection with embezzlement from a Head Start program.

The indictment accuses Willie Andrew Sharp of illegally approving $232,000 in overtime pay for himself, his wife and other people.

His wife, Denise Sharp, pleaded guilty in December to charges related to the embezzlement. She faces potential prison time and nearly $39,000 in restitution at her March 20 sentencing.

Four other people have pleaded guilty to charges related to the scheme.
