Lawyers in the Patrick Powell case in which he is accused of refusing to turn over his weapon to the authorities during the investigation into the fatal shooting of Khajeel Mais in July 2011 are to make final submissions on June 28.
The defence rested its case on Thursday morning in the St. Andrew Parish Court shortly after the businessman gave an unsworn statement. Powell denied allegations that he refused to turnover his gun to the authorities. He made quite a few headlines when he begged the Parish Judge Vaughn Smith to "have mercy" in deciding on matter.
However, interesting as that might be, what Yardflex finds intriguing is that RJR News is reporting that checks by them have revealed that that if convicted for the offence under the Firearms Act, Powell faces a maximum fine of J$400 or 12 months in prison!
