The day after being booked on four felony charges, former Hewlett-Packard Chairman Patricia Dunn on Friday resigned her position as a non-executive vice chairman of Barclays Global Investors.
Dunn had held the position at Barclays, an asset management company, for four years prior to being accused of taking part in an espionage campaign at HP to find the source of news leaks.
As part of the leak hunt, HP has acknowledged obtaining private telephone records belonging to journalists, employees and HP board members by false pretenses.
Dunn resigned her HP board seat last month.
In testimony before a congressional subcommittee last week, Dunn, 53, acknowledged that mistakes were made in the company's probe but denied responsibility for any criminal wrongdoing. The charges against Dunn and four others involved in the probe include identity theft and conspiracy.
On Sunday, Dunn will appear on the CBS Television show "60 Minutes," where she again declares her innocence. The interview was filmed just hours after California Attorney General Bill Lockyer charged Dunn.
"I know that I am going to be following a path to defend myself," she told CBS reporter Lesley Stahl, according to a story on CBSNews.com. "But at this instant, it's just a couple hours since (the prosecutor) made his announcement. Maybe someone will come in here while we're talking and put handcuffs on me. I don't know."
