Trinidad ISD Funds Embezzled by Business Manager for Lavish Disney Spending Spree

Orange Texas Man Faces Federal Prison and Restitution after Stealing Millions from School District

Brandon Delane Looney, a resident of Orange, Texas, has pleaded guilty to stealing money from the Trinidad Independent School District. Between 2017 and 2023, Looney embezzled over $300,000 from Trinidad ISD in Henderson County. He used the money for personal expenses, including trips to Walt Disney World and shopping sprees at The Disney Store.

Looney’s actions have resulted in him facing the possibility of up to 10 years in federal prison, a potential fine, and mandatory restitution to Trinidad ISD. However, the actual sentencing will be determined by the court based on relevant guidelines and factors.

Following his guilty plea, Looney has been working with the Financial Litigation Unit of the U.S. Attorney’s Office to sell his assets and preserve funds for restitution to Trinidad ISD. He has already sold his house in Vidor and other assets, securing over $200,000 for this purpose. The full restitution amount will be collectible for 20 years after Looney’s release from incarceration.

A sentencing hearing will be scheduled once a presentence investigation by the U.S. Probation Office is completed. Despite his cooperation in liquidating assets, Looney will still be held accountable for his actions and required to make amends to the school district he defrauded.
