Brigid Irish will be back in District Court on Monday, Sept. 28, for a scheduled arraignment.

Irish last appeared in Court on Sept. 2. During that appearance District Attorney Brett Barkey informed Judge Mary Hoak that a new plea agreement has been offered to Irish in the case. Irish’s Public Defender Chris Hamsher requested a continuance from Judge Hoak to review the details of the new agreement.

The details of the new plea agreement were not discussed during Irish’s last court appearance. The specific details of plea agreements remain confidential unless and until they are accepted by both the defendant and the Court.

Another plea agreement was previously offered in the case in early July. Judge Hoak rejected that plea in late July.

Irish has spent the last year working her way through the legal system in Grand County. The former administrative assistant with the Grand County Building Department stands accused of misappropriating more than $600,000 in department funds.
