Incarcerated Businessman Patrick Powell Ordered To Pay Khajeel Mais Family $2 Mil

Incarcerated businessman Patrick Powell has been ordered to pay the family of slain Kingston College student Khajeel Mais just over 2 million dollars.

The order was reportedly made in the Supreme Court yesterday by Justice Stephanie Jackson Haisley in a wrongful death lawsuit filed against the businessman by the parents of the 17-year-old.

Jackson Haisley ordered that Powell pay the estate of Khajeel Mais special damages of 1.7 million dollars with interest of three percent from July 1, 2011, the same day he was killed.

He has also been ordered to pay 206,788 dollars in special damages with three percent interest from February last year. The award comes 20 months after the case ended with a default judgement.

Powell did not contest the suit.

In the meantime, he is serving a nine-month sentence for failing to turn over his licensed firearm and ammunition to police investigators probing Mais death.
