Boxing champion Gervonta Davis could be facing jail time after being charged in an alleged hit-and-run incident back in November 2020.
“Tank” was charged by Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s office. Davis has been hit with 14 counts of traffic violations. The incident left four people injured. One of the most serious charges against Davis is four counts of failing to return and remain at the scene of an accident involving bodily injury. That charge alone can lead to one year of jail time.
Another serious charge is driving with a suspended license, which also carries a potential one-year sentence. He also could be looking at an additional year in jail due to driving with a revoked license.
The maximum sentence for all of Davis’ charges adds up to seven years and 55 days if convicted on all charges.
State Attorney, Marilyn Mosby, issued the following statement.
“Fortunately, the victims in this case were able to survive this alleged hit-and-run collision with recoverable injuries despite the potential for a far worse scenario. My office will continue to do our part to hold reckless drivers accountable when their harmful actions put innocent lives in jeopardy.”
