Prosecutor: Atlantic City, N.J. Man Sentenced For 15 Crimes
Kevin Davis of Atlantic City, New Jersey was sentenced to 48 years in prison by New Jersey Superior Court Judge, the Honorable W. Todd Miller, J.S.C.
Additionally, during the sentencing, Judge Miller announced that Davis will have to serve 24 years before being considered for parole.
In what is a big win for the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office, an Atlantic County jury found Davis guilty of 15 different crimes related to maintaining a drug production facility and various firearm offenses.
- The 15 crimes include:
- first-degree maintaining a fentanyl production facility.
- second-degree unlawful possession of a handgun in the furtherance of fentanyl production.
- resisting arrest by flight.
- first-degree unlawful possession of a handgun by an offender previously convicted of violating the No Early Release Act for violent offenders.
This is exactly how the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office describes the facts of this case.
On October 3, 2019, members of the Atlantic City Police Department executed a search warrant on a residence used by Davis to package fentanyl for sale. In Davis' bedroom, the police recovered a substantial quantity of fentanyl, paraphernalia used to package and label fentanyl for sale, and a handgun loaded with a high-capacity ammunition magazine which contained various rounds of ammunition, including hollow point ammunition. Police attempted to take Davis into custody after he exited the front door of the home, but he fled from police officers on a bicycle for several blocks in Atlantic City until he was taken into custody. Over 100 folds of fentanyl packaged for sale were recovered when Davis was taken into custody near the Boys and Girls Club and the Pennsylvania Avenue School, which led to additional charges for possessing fentanyl with intent to distribute near a school and public park for which he was also found guilty.
This is the third time as an adult that Davis has been been convicted for illegal possession of a handgun. He was also previously convicted of attempted murder.
