Frederick Man Given Long Prison Sentence For Firearms Offense, Probation Violation

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.
