MACHEL MONTANO found guilty on assault charges

Trinidadian soca artist MACHEL MONTANO has been found guilty on five criminal charges in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.

As reported in the Trinidad Express, Montano, Kernel Roberts (son of Calypso singer LORD KITCHENER); Joel “Zan” Feveck and Rodney “Benjai” LeBlanc were all charged with a series of criminal offences arising from a violent incident outside the Zen nightclub in April 2007.

Magistrate Maureen Baboolal-Gafoor, who postponed her decision twice, found Montano guilty on four charges of assault and of using obscene language during the incident.

Montano and Roberts are currently out on bail until sentencing in January and could face a maximum of five years behind bars.
