Gervonta Davis Declines Hit-And-Run Plea Bargain
Gervonta Davis has reportedly rejected a plea for an alleged hit-and-run incident.
The incident took place in November 2020. According to the reports, the trial is now scheduled for September 21, 2022.
In late March, Davis was seen in Baltimore City Circuit Court to fight the 14 misdemeanor charges in relation to the incident.
Prosecutors believe that the American boxer was driving with a suspended license, didn’t stop his car at a red signal and was involved in a car crash.
He is accused of crashing his car into a Toyota that carried four occupants who were injured. Consequently, the 27-year-old was charged with failure to show up to defend this case.
According to lawmakers, if a person drives a car with a suspended license and doesn’t show up if he is involved in an accident, he is sentenced to jail for a year.
There were earlier reports that Davis can be jailed for seven years if found guilty across all the alleged charges.
Davis has a huge, grudge match coming up against Rolando Romero on May 28. This fight was initially suspended in December 2021 when Romero was under investigation for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman. Those charges have since been dismissed.
