Doctor Eireann Kerr’s bid to clear her name will be heard in Derry Courthouse.

The 32-year-old anesthesiologist was found guilty in April of multiple crimes committed after a Christmas party with her coworkers in December 2013. A concerned Derry taxi driver had driven her to a city police station from a bar, where she reportedly became violent. Doctor Kerr, who lives in nearby Marlborough Park, testified in court that she had no memory of the events that night.

Upon her release from the police station she had blood tests taken at a local hospital and traces of the ‘date rape’ drug GHB were discovered.

The Londonderry Magistrates Court judge said at the time of her conviction that he was convinced her drink had indeed been tampered with, but explained that “involuntary intoxication” was not a legal defense for violence. The wayward doctor apparently assaulted several police officers twice that night. She was given a two-month conditional discharge.

The doctor reports that criminal convictions have put her medical career at risk.

Our Take:

“The doctor reports that criminal convictions have put her medical career at risk.”

Well, Doctor Kerr, in the worst case scenario you can always emigrate to the U.S. where violent physicians rarely lose their medical licenses for anything.
