Prisoner denies threat to kill

A 36-YEAR-OLD man has pleaded not guilty to threatening to kill a prison officer at HMP Acklington.

Alnwick Magistrates Court heard that Cameron Robinson, who has since been transferred to HMP Hull, reputedly made threats to kill both Jonathon Crozier and his family over a period of nine days in September.

Magistrates sent the case for trial to crown court.

Robinson was due to be in court again last week but refused to leave his cell at HMP Hull. It was adjourned to be dealt with at Bedlington via video link.
