James Contreras, who used to be in charge of the A.T.F. office in Seattle, is facing up to five years in prison.  Contreras, 52, pled guilty Wednesday to taking money from a fund for undercover informants.

He had been accused of taking nearly $20,000 from that fund.  In a plea deal, Contreras pled guilty to forging a name on a $700 voucher.  The deal also resulted in 29 other charges being dropped.

Contreras resigned in 2012.  He’s due to be sentenced in May.
