Gervonta Davis, a well-known boxer, has avoided a jail sentence in his hit-and-run case and has instead been sentenced to three months of house arrest. The sentencing took place in a Baltimore courtroom less than three months after the boxer cut a plea deal with prosecutors. Davis pleaded guilty to four lesser offenses as part of the agreement he made with officials in February.
Initially, Davis was hit with 14 charges in the case back in March 2021. Authorities alleged that he ran a red light in his 2020 Lamborghini Urus and crashed into a Toyota on November 5, 2020, just days after his big win over Leo Santa Cruz. Prosecutors claimed that a woman in the car that Davis hit was pregnant at the time of the wreck. They accused Davis of never offering her assistance before fleeing the scene. If convicted on all of the charges, Davis had faced a potential maximum of seven years and 55 days in prison.
Despite the conclusion of the case in Baltimore, Davis is not out of the woods yet. He still has a case lingering over his head in Broward County, Florida, where he is facing a misdemeanor battery charge. The charge stems from allegations that he roughed up a woman during a heated argument on December 27. Davis is due in court for a hearing on the matter later this month.
In addition to serving 90 days of home detention, Davis was also ordered to complete 200 hours of community service. The 28-year-old boxer recently scored the biggest win of his boxing career in a fight with Ryan Garcia last month. While he may have had a successful fight, his legal troubles continue to follow him.
