A New York judge on Friday ordered former Hunter Biden business partner, Devon Archer, to turn himself in for his role in defrauding a corporate arm of a Native American tribe.

In 2018, Archer was convicted for his role in defrauding the Wakpamni Lake Community Corp., which is the business arm of the Wakpamni Lake Community of the Oglala Sioux Tribe based in South Dakota.

He and the other defendants were charged with misusing millions of dollars for "for personal purposes."

Prosecutors say some of the purchases included luxury cars and jewelry, according to NBC News. The Supreme Court last month rejected Archer's appeal in the case.   

Archer, who served on the board of directors of the Ukraine energy exploration company Burisma Holdings Limited with Hunter Biden, President Biden's son. They also were classmates at Yale.
