Feds: Woman stole from CdA tribal group

A Spokane woman is accused of stealing nearly $30,000 from the Coeur d'Alene Tribal Housing Authority.

Debora J. Zimmerman, 46, was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury for embezzlement from an Indian tribal organization, the U.S. Attorney's Office announced Wednesday.

An arraignment date has not been set.

The indictment alleges Zimmerman stole more $28,000 from the housing authority between September 2008 and September 2010.

If convicted, Zimmerman faces up to five years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000, and not more than three years of probation. The case was investigated by the FBI.
