Cummiskey facing more charges
P.E.I. man pleads not guilty to theft, probation breach
A P.E.I. man who is awaiting trial in connection with an assault that sent another man to hospital with life-threatening injuries is facing further charges in an unrelated case.
Jeremy Joseph Cummiskey made a brief appearance before Judge John Douglas Wednesday in provincial court in Charlottetown where he pleaded not guilty to theft and a probation breach.
Sheriffs brought Cummiskey into the courtroom since he is in custody while he awaits trial on the assault charge.
Cummiskey and Michael Robert Bryenton allegedly assaulted Trevor Acorn at his apartment on Euston Street in Charlottetown.
Acorn was rushed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and later transferred to Halifax.
Cummiskey’s trial in that case is scheduled to start March 1.
He will also return to court March 9 for a trial on the theft and probation breach charges.
The Guild will feature two performances by Pendergast at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., and family glowin-the-dark bowling is being offered at the Murphy’s Community Centre at 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
Free tickets for the family swim must be picked up in advance, beginning Feb. 8, and the bowling lanes must be pre-booked, beginning Feb. 8.

Deputy Mayor Mike Duffy, chairman of the economic development, tourism and arts and culture committees, says it’s wonderful to see community partners coming together to help the city offer a range of activities for Islander Day.
“Hopefully the weather co-operates and we’re able to make most of this winter holiday together with these fun, free activities,” Duffy said.
