Lawyer to Appeal Dante Guilty Verdict


High-profile attorney-at-law Peter Champagnie, QC says he’s preparing to appeal the guilty verdict handed down to his client, Dante Brooks, son of dancehall deejay Mavado.

On Wednesday, 18 year old Brooks, was found guilty of the murder of 23-year-old Lorenzo Thomas in the Home Circuit Court in downtown Kingston.

He was also convicted of illegal possession of firearm and arson.

Co-accused Andre Hinds was also found guilty of the capital offence. Sentencing is scheduled for March 10.

Other members of Champagnie’s defence team included Oswest Senior-Smith, Tameka Harris and Kemar Robinson.
