On December 10, 2012 Soca legend Machel Montano was found guilty on four charges of assault against Gerard Borwin, Brandis Browne, Janelle Lee Chee and Russell Pollonais. This stems from a 2007 fracas outside a nightclub in Port of Spain on April 26, 2007.
Montano was also found guilty of using obscene language during the same incident.
The matter was adjourned to January 17, 2013, after hearing pleas of leniency from Montano’s attorney. It was ordered he remain free on bail pending the courts decision.
Montano can be sentenced to a maximum of five years imprisonment after been found guilty of such charges in the island nation of Trinidad & Tobago
