CITY, CO- A jury just found Canon City Council Member Michael Katchmar guilty of harassment but not guilty of third degree assault and disorderly conduct.
Both Canon City council member Michael Katchmar, and a local artist Thomas Lockhart, were accused of assaulting Robert and Margene Martin after a wine tasting event on May 30th. Katchmar had pleaded not guilty back in July.
Katchmar's attorney said his client admitted to speaky rudely to Margene Martin and regretted the incident.
"None of these people are bad folks, not the Martins, not Tom Lockhart, not my client," attorney Roger Larsen explained. "I do not believe any one of them would've been involved in this episode except for the alcohol."
We will have more details tonight at 10 p.m. on the verdict.
