Imprisoned District Judge pleads guilty to new charge

A former District Court judge serving a 2 and a half years sentence for deception has pleaded guilty to a new charge.

Heather Perrin of Lambay Court, Malahide, Co. Dublin has admitted falsifying an account, with an intent of making a gain on a date between May 2004 and February 2009.

She was convicted last year of deceiving an old family friend into leaving almost half of his one million euro estate to her children.

The 61 year old included her 2 children as main beneficiaries of Thomas Davis's will in January 2009 while acting as his solicitor.

She was appointed a judge in February of that year but resigned following her conviction.

She will be sentenced on the new charge on March 13th.
