He pleaded guilty to the firearms offense on Wed.
Frederick, Md (KM) A Frederick man is going to prison for a long time. In Circuit Court on Wednesday morning, Mekhi Caire Davis, 22, was sentenced to a total of 18 years incarceration.
Davis pleaded guilty to possession of a regulated firearm with a prior felony conviction. Judge Julie Stevenson Solt sentenced Davis to five years without eligibility for parole for that offense. . He had been on probation for possession with intent to distribute cocaine and another firearms offense. . In addition to the five years, Davis was sentenced to 13-and-a-half years for admitting he violated his probation based on his guilty plea to the firearms offense.
Prosecutors say Davis is a repeat gun offender and a convicted felon for his conviction of possession with intent to distribute cocaine, and was prohibited from possessing a firearm.
“This defendant has had numerous opportunities to turn his life around,” says State’s Attorney Charlie Smith, in a statement. “Judge Solt’s strong sentence will serve to protect our community from someone who has shown a disregard for the safety of those around him.”
The State’s Attorney’s Office says the investigation which led to Davis’ arrest and indictment was a coordinated effort led by the Frederick Police Department in consultation with the State’s Attorney’s Office under the Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network.
