Michele Gérin pleads guilty
Michele Gérin, of Coaticook, who has been removed from the bar for a period of seven years, acknowledged, last Wednesday at the Sherbrooke Court House, that she made up a divorce judgement of the Superior Court for a client. The 52 year-old woman headed the Saint-Francois bar in 2002-2003. In front of Judge Paul Chevalier of the Quebec Court, she pleaded guilty to the accusations of creating a false document and treating it as if it were authentic.
These criminal acts, punishable by a maximum penalty of ten years in prison, concerned divorce proceedings that took place about ten years ago. She had been representing the husband in the case.
