WILKES-BARRE — A Luzerne County judge on Friday approved a protection order against a man serving time at a state prison boot camp for assault and stealing a human skull from a mausoleum.
On behalf of herself and her son, Jacqueline Kaschak, 24, of Wilkes-Barre, filed a petition for protection from abuse against Jesse Geasey, 33, whose address she lists as Quehanna Boot Camp — a six-month, military-style motivational boot camp run by the state Department of Corrections in Clearfield County.
Kaschak and Geasey are the parents of the 2-year-old named in the petition.
In her petition, Kaschak said she received a journal from Geasey that’s “full of death threats and entries that show he has severe mental issues. He wrote, ‘You reap what you sow — HARVEST TIME. I WILL KILL YOU!!!! KASCHAK MUST DIE. … KASCHAK WILL DIE … YOU’RE DEAD.’”
Kaschak also alleges that Geasey wrote he doesn’t know if he can be a good father and husband “if I continue on the path of darkness. … It’s always waiting there for me to come back. … People underestimate me and it’s part of why I am here (boot camp). I’ll make everyone pay and you will see. … If she strays, I will devour and demolish any and all who dare to claim my love.”
Kaschak wrote that Geasey “speaks of Lucifer often” in the journal and “seems to believe he’s here ‘to do the devil’s work.’” She asks in the petition that Geasey be ordered to refrain from any contact with her, her children and her relatives either in person, by telephone or in writing.
Judge Thomas Burke granted a temporary protection order pending a hearing on a permanent order scheduled for May 9.
Geasey, formerly of Hanover Township, was sentenced last April to 28 months to five years after he pleaded guilty to an aggravated assault charge stemming from a May 2011 incident in which police say he injured one of six people who were slashed during a fight at Coal and Meade streets.
Geasey also had pleaded guilty to charges of criminal trespassing and abuse of corpse in the mausoleum incident, in which police say he entered the Hollenback Cemetery in July 2010 and removed the skull of a woman who died in 1926. He is serving a concurrent sentence on the trespassing and abuse-of-corpse charges.
Geasey’s estranged wife had testified at his preliminary hearing that his nicknames were “Bone Daddy” and “L” for Lucifer and that he was infatuated with death and bones.
At his sentencing, Geasey’s attorney, Allyson Kacmarski, said her client had completed a 12-step program at the county prison and had attended drug-and-alcohol counseling. She said he had the support of a fiancee and four sisters, was the father of three children and wanted to make his life better to spend time with them.
