According to United States Attorney Sally Quillian Yates, the charges and other information presented in court: On Sept. 14, 2013, the Atlanta Police Department received a call from a concerned citizen, who told police that Davis was acting violent and had a handgun in east Atlanta.
Police found Davis, 34, on the street, smelling strongly of marijuana, with a Glock, 40 cal. handgun loaded with 11 rounds of ammunition in his possession. When police arrived, Davis was waving the handgun and making threatening comments.The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail and a fine of up to $250,000. But the district court, upon accepting the plea, will sentence Davis, of Atlanta, to serve 39-months in a federal prison for his crime. Sentencing has been set for July 28, 2014, before United States District Court Judge Steve C. Jones.
Davis has been incarcerated since last September.
“Davis has a long history of violence and of illegally possessing and using guns," said Yates in a release. “This Office will prosecute those who illegally possess firearms, especially when, as Davis did, they have a history of violence and threaten others with firearms. Our priority is to take violent repeat offenders off our streets to build safer communities.”
