SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — The founding director of Claremont McKenna College's Rose Institute of Government has been sentenced to a year and nine months in prison under a plea deal for conspiring to bilk an Indian tribe out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The San Bernardino Sun reports that David Alan Heslop received the sentence Monday after pleading guilty to one felony count of conspiracy to commit bribery.

Prosectuors say Heslop took part in a kickback scheme that cheated the Twentynine Palms Band of Mission Indians out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. A restitution hearing will be scheduled in the next three months to determine if he must pay restitution.

Under the deal, Heslop will be allowed to appeal and remain free on bail during the process.
