THE father of a man convicted of attempted murder wants to visit him in prison.
Marcin Kasprzak faces a lengthy jail sentence after he kidnapped, bound and buried his fiance Michelina Lewandowska in woodland.
But his father Andrzej is subject to a court curfew.
A jury earlier this week found his son guilty of attempted murder and he will be sentenced next month.
Huddersfield magistrates were told yesterday that his father, Andrzej Kasprzak, wants to visit his son in prison.
But he was concerned that he would be unable to do this as he is subject to a curfew order. Kasprzak, of Penistone Road, was convicted of drink-driving in May this year.
Magistrates banned him from driving for 22 months.
But he was later given a five-month curfew order for driving while disqualified.
The order was varied so that he could be in court for his son’s trial.
Magistrates were told that Kasprzak thought that his electronic tag would prevent him from visiting the prison because of security issues.
However a check from the probation service revealed that he can attend.
Kasprzak was not in court, but was given this information on the phone via his Polish interpreter.
