Bru­tal as­sault case due up in Fe­bru­ary

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - PROVINCE -

A pre-trial date has been set next month for one of two men charged with ag­gra­vated as­sault in con­nec­tion with a bru­tal as­sault in Novem­ber. Jeremy Joseph Cum­miskey, 22, is sched­uled to ap­pear in court Feb. 17. If a trial is re­quired, three days have been set aside start­ing March 1. Cum­miskey has been charged with as­sault in con­nec­tion with the Nov. 24 as­sault that sent 42-year-old Trevor Dale Acorn to hos­pi­tal in Hal­i­fax with life-threat­en­ing in­juries. Cum­miskey ear­lier pleaded guilty to a mis­chief charge re­lat­ing to dam­age he caused at the po­lice sta­tion the day of his ar­rest for ag­gra­vated as­sault and was sen­tenced to serve 15 days in jail. He re­mains in cus­tody. Michael Robert Bryen­ton, the other man charged in con­nec­tion with the as­sault of Acorn, also re­mains in cus­tody. Acorn has since been re­leased from hos­pi­tal.
