Houle and four others are accused of diverting federal stimulus funds. The Chippewa Cree Tribe received $33 million in federal funding between 2009 and 2010 for construction of a $361 million pipeline to supply fresh drinking water for the Rocky Boy's Indian Reservation and surrounding counties in northern Montana. Most of that $33 million came from the 2009 American Recover and Reinvestment act, also known as the stimulus. (AP Photo/Matt Volz)
