Jimmy Davis, 41, of St. Croix, had his supervised release revoked and was sentenced to 24 months incarceration, U.S. Attorney Gretchen C.F. Shappert announced.
Davis originally had been sentenced to federal prison for 33 months in 2010 and has been on supervised release since 2014.
Chief Judge Wilma A. Lewis conducted a revocation hearing on Nov. 25. At the conclusion of the hearing Judge Lewis found that on Dec. 12, 2017, Davis assaulted his live-in girlfriend and choked her, and that these acts constituted the offenses of second-degree assault/domestic violence and simple assault and battery/domestic violence. Additionally, Lewis found that Davis was convicted by jury trial on April 12, 2019, of simple possession of cocaine and aggravated assault and battery.
According to the jury trial testimony, on Feb. 26, 2018, Virgin Island Police Department officers arrested Davis on an outstanding Superior Court warrant. At the time of his arrest, Davis was in possession of 9.61 grams of crack cocaine. This cocaine was located in his front right pants pocket. The DEA Southeast Laboratory in Miami, Florida, subsequently analyzed the substance and confirmed it to be cocaine base, a Schedule II controlled substance.
Additionally, while the defendant was being processed and booked at the police station after his arrest, he became boisterous, verbally threatened, and then intentionally kicked Officer Travis Herbert in the right thigh area.
Davis is facing additional sentencing on Feb. 28 on his simple possession of cocaine and aggravated assault and battery convictions.
