Michael Kandola, the man charged in an alleged gay-bashing assault in the West End, will be pleading guilty to aggravated assult in the attack that left another man with a boken jaw requiring the jaw to be wired shut for a month. He'll be appearing in court Wednesday to enter a plea on a charge of assault causing bodily harm. Two days have been set for sentencing. At issue will be whether it was a hate crime.
