Cum­miskey fac­ing more charges

P.E.I. man pleads not guilty to theft, pro­ba­tion breach

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE PROVINCE -

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.
