Court proceedings start for suspect in county embezzlement-case

Grand County Court Judge Ben McClelland has set former Grand County Building Department employee Brigid Irish’s trial-setting conference for Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2014. The new date will give Irish’s defense time to review evidence before her trial.

The Grand County Sheriff’s Office issued an arrest warrant for Irish in May in relation to around $500,000 in misappropriated funds at the Grand County Building Department.

Irish has been charged with one count of attempting to influence a public servant, 12 counts of forgery, and 915 counts of embezzlement.
