The former president of the Tonkawa Tribe of Oklahoma has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to embezzle funds from the tribe.

Federal prosecutors said Anthony E. Street entered the plea during a hearing Monday in federal court in Oklahoma City.

A grand jury indicted Street in October for allegedly conspiring with former Vice President Gordon Warrior and Secretary-Treasurer Dawena Pappan to embezzle more than $500,000 from the tribe's general fund. Prosecutors alleged the trio began writing checks to themselves for personal use soon after taking office in 2005.

Warrior and Pappan have pleaded guilty to embezzlement counts, and are scheduled to be sentenced June 20.

Street's attorney, O. Ronald McGee, didn't immediately return a phone call seeking comment after hours.

Street is scheduled to be formally sentenced Sept. 5.
