Irish Immigrant Guilty Of $500,000 Scam

An Irish immigrant pleads guilty to scamming some East Texans out of half a million dollars.

Julia Parrish "wined and dined" some of her so-called "close friends", convincing them to invest in non-existent real estate in Ireland.

Parrish has been indicted on 12 counts of wire fraud, bank fraud and false use of a social security number.

The sentencing phase will likely begin in 60 days. Parrish faces up to 20 years in prison.
