A Ho-Chunk tribal member was found guilty after prosecutors said he received more than $3 million from companies wanting to do business with the tribe.
A jury found Timothy Whiteagle, 60, of Black River Falls guilty of 12 federal charges Wednesday. Prosecutors say Whiteagle worked as a covert lobbyist for several financial companies.
He and others were also accused of giving cash and gifts to an elected official in the Ho-Chunk Nation.
Whiteagle faces up to 111 years in prison.
