Nearly one year after an arrest warrant was first issued for her, Brigid Irish will be back in District Court on Thursday, April 30, for an arraignment before 14th Judicial District Judge Mary Hoak.

Irish is scheduled to appear at 2:15 p.m. Irish was in court on March 9 for an arraignment that was continued until April 30. During another arraignment appearance in late February, Irish informed Judge Hoak that she was dismissing her attorney William Frankfurt.

During that appearance, Irish also informed the court that she would be seeking a public defender. On March 9, Chris Hamsher, public defender out of the Steamboat Springs Regional Public Defenders Office, entered on behalf of Irish.

Irish, a former Grand County Building Department administrative assistant, is accused of misappropriating more than half a million dollars in department funds. She was preliminarily charged with one count of attempting to influence a public servant, 12 counts of forgery and 915 counts of embezzlement.

He case moved into District Court at the start of 2015 after working its way through Grand County Court.
