A home carer and “psychic medium” has been convicted of deceiving a man of €10,000 by telling him his deceased father had told her he should give her the money.

Debbie Paget (56) of Knowth Court, Ballymun, Dublin was on trial at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court charged with dishonestly inducing by deception James Byrne to give her €10,000. She was also charged with dishonestly inducing by deception Maria Byrne to give her €200.

She had pleaded not guilty to both offences. After deliberating for a little over four hours, the jury found Paget guilty, by a majority, of the first count and returned a not guilty verdict on the second count.

Judge Pauline Codd remanded Paget on continuing bail to July 10 for a sentence hearing. She thanked the jury for its service. “It was a highly unusual case. We appreciate the work you have done,” she said.

In his evidence, James Byrne told Oisin Clarke BL, prosecuting, that he and his sister Maria and their mother lived together at Glendhu Road, Cabra, Dublin. He said Paget was a home carer for a neighbour and they all got to know her that way.
