• Bookmarks: 27

In a federal court on Monday, a St. Croix man was sentenced to over 15 years in prison for his involvement in a 2017 carjacking incident.

Luis Davis was one of three individuals who broke into a home, brandished a firearm at the residents, physically assaulted the male resident, and threatened to kill the couple if they did not hand over their money and vehicles. The trio then stole the couple’s wallet, two vehicles, and various items including cash, phones, and an iPad.

Davis was convicted of several charges including carjacking, using a firearm during a violent crime, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The judge sentenced him to 186 months of incarceration, followed by 5 years of supervised release. In addition, Davis will also have to pay a $1,000 fine, $1,600 in restitution, and a $300 special assessment. He was also separately convicted of first-degree assault in the Virgin Islands Superior Court.
