May sentence date for prisoner who tried to stab guard

Mon, 07 Mar 2016

A serving prisoner who tried to stab a prison guard as he was escorting him to his cell will be sentenced in May.

33-year-old Christopher Mccluskey appeared before the Court of General Gaol Delivery at Douglas Courthouse last week.

He's already pleaded guilty to one charge of affray after lunging at the officer on September 9th last year brandishing a makeshift knife.

The court was previously told Mccluskey had "no remorse" about the pre-planned attack and said he'd "do it again" if he had the opportunity.

Social enquiry reports have been requested before he's sentenced on May 9th.
