Man to stand trial after denying alleged Carlisle attempted burglary

Carlisle Crown Court

A MAN accused of trying to break into a home in Carlisle is to stand trial in September.

James Tweedy, 41, pleaded not guilty to one charge when he appeared at the city’s crown court over a video link.

This alleges attempted burglary, on June 4 this year, when Tweedy is alleged to have attempted to enter a dwelling at Watermans Walk, on the Garlands estate, “as a trespasser with intent to steal”.

During a short hearing, a timetable for the progression of the case was outlined by prosecutor Gerard Rogerson.

Tweedy, of Fusehill Street, Carlisle, is due to go on trial in front of a jury at the crown court in the week of September 2.

In the meantime, Tweedy – who was represented by lawyer Paul Tweddle – was remanded in custody by Judge James Adkin.
