The two child victims, who were threatened by Davis, delayed disclosure until Davis was no longer living in the home. Davis abused the victims in St. Charles County and committed the aforementioned crimes.
Sentencing is set for July 31, 2017, in front of the Honorable Jon Cunningham. Davis faces a minimum of a 10 year sentence.
