    Las Vegas, Nevada (AP)

    A top College of Southern Nevada official indicted on felony theft charges had previously been convicted of embezzling from a California tribe, court records show.

    William “Bob” Gilbert, the school’s associate vice president for facilities management, pleaded guilty in 1991 to a charge of embezzling from an Indian tribal organization, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. He was sentenced to three months in prison and three years probation and ordered to pay $18,705 in restitution.
