patrick-powell.jpgAfter being acquitted in the case of murdered Kingston College school-boy Khajeel Mais, businessman Patrick Powelll finally has a guilty charge. But with the pitiful fine on the books for that particular gun charge, he may well have been found innocent.

Powell, who made the headlines last month when he begged the Parish Judge Vaughn Smith to have mercy on him, was on Tuesday morning found guilty of failing to hand over his licensed firearm to the police. The verdict was handed down by Parish Judge Vaughn Smith in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court.


Powell was charged with failing to hand over his licensed firearm for inspection to detectives who investigated the shooting death of Kingston College student, Khajeel Mais, in 2011. He will know his fate on August 9, when the sentencing is scheduled to be handed down.

Powell was freed of Mais' murder in October 2016 after the prosecution offered no further evidence in the case before the Home Circuit Court. The acquittal came after the prosecution's main witness denied giving a statement to police that implicated Powell in the killing.
