Woman admits to stealing from Derry care home residents

A 35-year-old woman has admitted six specimen charges of stealing £64,000 from the residents of a care home on Derry.

The woman, Juanita Ferguson of Lower Nassau Street pleaded guilty to the charges relating to the theft which took place in 2005.

Judge Des Marinan released the woman on continuing bail but told her that stealing money from the residents of a care home was a very serious offence.

He ordered a pre-sentence report to be prepared and the case was adjourned until April 23 for sentence.
