Michele Gérin pleads guilty

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

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.
