In early May, multi-division world champion Gervonta Davis avoided a jail sentence on his hit and run plea agreement from November of 2020. However, on Thursday afternoon, Davis was summoned to Baltimore County court, again, and has now been taken into custody for a violation of his home confinement conditions.
The Baltimore Banner reported first Thursday night that Davis went, again, before judge Althea Handy in what was described as an “impromptu hearing” and Handy ordered him to the serve the remainder of his 90 days of original sentence of home confinement in the Baltimore County Jail.
Handy had given Davis the home confinement sentence, as well as, three years probation and 200 hours of community service in lieu of him serving a 26-month jail sentence for pleading guilty to five charges in the November 2020 car accident that injured four others in the other car he struck.
Other media reports in Baltimore from earlier this week say that Davis had purchased a $3 million dollar condo in the Baltimore area and this could be connected to his violation of home confinement. Davis was told by the judge to have been only at the home of trainer Calvin Ford or at the gym that Ford runs in Baltimore to work out.
Davis’ attorney Michael Tomko confirmed to the Baltimore paper that his client was ordered to serve the remainder of his 90 day sentence in the Jail.
The latest part of Davis’s legal soap operas finally sees him doing time after he’s been repeatedly arrested and charged with things like: two separate instances of domestic violence. One in February of 2020 at a charity basketball game in South Florida and another one late last year, at his South Florida home in another incident with a different woman. Both of those cases were eventually dropped without Davis having any kind of punishment.
Davis was last in the ring in April when he knocked out fellow and beaten Ryan Garcia in a massive pay-per-view in Las Vegas in arguably the biggest win of his career. The victory improved Davis to 29-0, 27 KOs, inside the ring and was the biggest payday of his career. This, as the fight generated an over $20 million gate with over 1 million pay per views bought.
However, none of that matters at the moment, as Davis is now incarcerated in a Baltimore County facility.
