[A] WEST Cumbria man who agreed to wear his brother’s electronic curfew tag has been sent to prison.
Daniel Jones, 32, went along with a plot which also involved his sibling, Paul, who had been ordered by a court to stay indoors at night.
The plan led to Daniel Jones being fitted with a monitoring tag on his brother’s behalf at an address in Distington. But the pair were caught out.
And at Carlisle Crown Court, Daniel Jones, of Great Clifton, near Workington, was jailed for six months. He had previously admitted a charge of perverting the course of justice.
Judge James Adkin heard the other brother had been given an eight-month jail term at the crown court for his role in the offence late last year.
Judge Adkin said the criminal conduct “undermines the authority of the court”.
