Inmate's 'mental health ' plea granted

A series of charges brought against a prisoner has been dropped on mental health grounds.Alister John Cowin appeared at Douglas courthouse via video link from Jurby on Tuesday.

The 33 year-old was accused of disorderly or threatening behaviour on several ocasions in March and April last year while serving a sentence for other crimes.

But a psychiatric report found Cowin had been suffering from ongoing health issues - prompting Deputy High Bailiff Jayne Hughes to suspend all four charges.

His current sentence will continue to run as normal.
