Appearing via video link to Durham Prison, the 23-year-old told magistrates: “I have really thought about life and where I want to be in the future and prison is simply not for me.”...I'd prefer the birch. We can send the useless magistrates to prison instead.
But why is this man threatening a funeral director (in breach of a restraining order) anyway?
At an earlier hearing, magistrates in Darlington heard Cumiskey had responded to an advert placed five years ago by the funeral director offering training in embalming.
However after spending six hours with him, he was unnerved by Cumiskey, who was described as being strange and ‘having an unhealthy interest in the dead'.Creepy!
In a letter to magistrates, Cumiskey said: “I want to become the nice young man that I know I am and become a good member of the public.”
He also said he wanted to enrol at college to become a renewable energy engineer.*cancels order for solar panel installation*
