Workington woman admits perverting course of public justice charge

Carlisle Crown Court

A WORKINGTON woman has been warned that all sentencing options are open after she admitted a perverting the course of justice charge.

Sarah Messenger, 33, appeared at Carlisle Crown Court earlier today (FRI.

Messenger admitted one offence of doing an act tending and intended to pervert the course of public justice.

The charge she admitted states that between June 13 and 16 last year she submitted a letter – purporting to be from a doctor – to the crown court sitting in Carlisle in connection with ongoing proceedings.

Judge Peter Davies adjourned the case, and directed that a pre-sentence report be prepared by a probation officer before the punishment is handed down.

Messenger, of Vulcans Lane, Workington, was granted bail and is due to be sentenced for the offence at the crown court on March 29.

“I am going to grant you bail now,” said Judge Davies. “You can’t take that as any indication of what the sentence will be. All options will be open.”
