Angelica Garcia Dunn admitted to diverting over $2.2 million in vendor payments to her own business accounts. She worked as a contract escrow agent with BP. As part of her duties, she provided third-party services by making vendor payments to BP’s railcar lessors and repair vendors.

U.S. District Judge Alfred Bennett accepted the plea and set sentencing for Sept. 30. At that time, Dunn faces up to 20 years in prison and a possible $250,000 maximum fine. She was permitted to remain on bond pending that hearing.
