A BRAY GARDA appeared before Dublin District Court this morning following allegations she fabricated an official document.

Catherine McGowan (46) from west Dublin allegedly forged a letter from the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions in a case investigating a sexual assault.

The incident happened two years ago on 21 June 2011 at Bray Garda Station in Wicklow.

She was charged under section 28 of the 2004 Criminal Justice Theft and Fraud Offences Act.

Judge Victor Blake ordered that McGowan be remanded on bail until 19 July when she will stand trial at the Dublin District Court.
