A short while ago, businessman Patrick Powell received a nine month sentence to be served at hard labour for failing to hand over his licensed firearm to police investigators.

The offence is a breach of the Firearms Act.

The sentence was reportedly handed down by Parish Judge Vaughn Smith in the St Andrew Parish Court.

Mr Powell’s claim that the firearm was stolen from a safe at his house was rejected by the judge.

Last month Powell was convicted after failing to submit his weapon for inspection in the 2011 investigation surrounding the fatal shooting of 17 year Khjeel Mais.

Powell was tried for Mais’ murder but was freed last year due to a lack of evidence.
