San Manuel Indian and San Bernardino County district attorney officials deny that $22,500 in political contributions from the tribe to District Attorney Michael Ramos affected the plea deals that could allow two tribal members to avoid prison for their parts in plotting to kill a man in 2006.

On Friday, Assistant District Attorney Dennis Christy denied the connection.

"I can't emphasize that enough," Christy said.
