UPDATE: Machel Montano sentencing Postponed to February 25! [KingpinTV*net]

The courts in Trinidad and Tobago intend to sentence soca superstar Machel Montano on five criminal charges on February 25.

Montano, the headline act for several Carnival 2013 fetes, including his own show Machel Monday scheduled for February 4, had previously assured his fans that he would be performing this Carnival in the face of his court hearing today.

Lawyers representing Montano and those representing the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, made legal submissions to the magistrate before a packed to capacity courtroom, at the Port of Spain Magistrates Court.

The legal arguments surrounded whether or not Montana can be sentenced to community service for the offences.

“There was a mini-stampede to get into the courtroom,” Express reporter Rickie Ramdass said, adding that at times police officers had to lock the doors to the courtroom to prevent fans and other people from entering.

The adjournment of Montano’s sentencing will allow the soca legend to perform at Trinidad carnival, which is recognized as one of the largest outdoor festivals in the world
