LANDER, Wyo. (AP) - The chief judge on a Wyoming Indian reservation has been indicted on two federal criminal charges.

The Ranger reports that Wind River Indian Reservation Judge Terri Smith is charged with one count of unlawful use of a communications center and one count of unlawful distribution of cocaine.

Smith pleaded not guilty to the charges during a hearing before federal Magistrate Teresa McKee on Wednesday.

A trial date was not immediately scheduled.

Smith was sworn in as judge in January 2018.
