Lucy Lynn Bradburn, 43, of Ridge, Maryland, pleaded guilty today to mail fraud charges in connection with her embezzlement of $104,926 from IAP World Services, Inc., where she was employed as a senior accountant and supply administrator in charge of vendor payments. According to authorities, over a 7 year period from November 2002 until December 2009, Bradburn submitted 44 bogus requests for purported vendor payments to Sears. These payments actually went to Bradburn's own personal Sears account. She faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
