BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - The Seneca Nation has banished a lawyer who admits to embezzling $200,000 from the gaming corporation.

The Seneca Tribal Council voted on Saturday to expel 62 year old Timothy Toohey of Lewiston from its lands.

Toohey pleaded guilty on Friday to an unlawful agreement to make money off of the Senecas' purchase of 200 acres of land in Lewiston for a golf course.
