Lawyer admits stealing $302 000
Seven years after making her last payment, attorney Cheraine Nicole Parris paid up another $10 000 yesterday, moments after she admitted stealing $302 000 from a former horse trainer ten years ago.
She will, however, remain on bail pending sentencing as members of her family rally to repay the remainder of the money.
Parris, of Lowlands, Christ Church, was back in the No. 2 Supreme Court, where she pleaded guilty to stealing the money belonging to Ashleigh Morrison, between April 15 and August 16, 2010.
She also admitted engaging in money laundering in that she disposed of $302 000 between April 15 and August 16, 2010, being the proceeds of crime. (HLE)
