A judge denied Nancy Kerrigan’s brother’s request to return to jail to serve out the end of his assault and battery conviction, following his father Daniel Kerrigan’s death, in a Massachusetts court on Wednesday.

Middlesex Superior Court Judge Kathe M. Tuttman did not allow Mark Kerrigan, 47, to serve the remaining four to six months of his jail term instead of complying with the conditions of his release – anger management classes, mental health counseling and AA meetings.

“It is not up to Mr. Kerrigan to decide that he’d rather serve his sentence than abide by conditions. The conditions were ordered,” the Boston Herald reported the judge said.

Chief Probation Officer Paul Cashman told the judge that Kerrigan “was given conditions to abide by and at this point he hasn’t done anything.”

Kerrigan’s attorney, Janice Bassil, told the judge that her client, who was convicted in May 2011, was having trouble meeting the conditions of his probation.

“The reality is, frankly, the conditions set on my client I’m not sure anyone could meet,” she said.

Nancy Kerrigan was not in court but her mother attended with Mark.
