Manitoba chief’s theft gets 1-year sentence

An aboriginal leader was handed a one-year suspended sentence on Monday for stealing money from her Manitoba band. Margaret Swan was grand chief of the Southern Chiefs Organization in March when she pleaded guilty to theft over $5,000.

Swan stole cheques worth $35,000 from the Lake Manitoba First Nation in 2000 while she was the band’s chief. Judge Robert Kopstein ordered Swan to perform 50 hours of community service work and to pay back the stolen money. A payment of $12,000 is due within a week.
