Woman likely to admit corruption charges

AAP logoAAP 4/11/2016

A woman facing 74 charges following an investigation by South Australia's Independent Commissioner Against Corruption is likely to plead guilty.

Josephine Maria Cray, 61, appeared in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on Friday along with a co-accused, James Richard Beaumont, 62, who has been charged with aiding and abetting the woman.

Details of the allegations were not revealed in court but an ICAC statement says the 74 counts of abuse of public office are alleged to have occurred between July 2012 and July 2016.

Cray's lawyer, Stephen Ey, told the court that he anticipated a guilty plea and asked for the case to return to court in December.

But Magistrate Bob Harrap said once the pleas had been "stitched up" counsel could contact the court to have the matter listed at their convenience.

In the meantime, Mr Harrap ordered the case be heard again on January 12 for declarations to be provided by the prosecution.

Beaumont did not indicate his intentions.
