Indianapolis man found guilty of series of robberies will spend the rest of his life in prison



Indianapolis, Indiana – The 51-year-old Jerry Davis will spend the rest of his life in prison after he was found guilty for series of robberies that took place in 2019, court records confirmed.

According to the official reports, Davis robbed at least four businesses in November 2019 and he was convicted about these incidents earlier this year in federal court. There is no parole for the incidents in the federal court system.

Authorities say Davis had five prior convictions in state court for robbery and or attempted robbery.

Additionally, Davis sometimes attacked the workers where he robbed the businesses attacking them with spray and a large metal pipe.

He is sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years.

“Mr. Davis has been victimizing the citizens of this community with his violent behavior for twenty-five years,” said U.S. Attorney Zachary A. Myers.

“Each time the defendant returned to the community from prison he could have changed his ways. Instead, he chose to engage in a series of violent attacks against innocent victims. The serious sentence imposed demonstrates that repeat violent offenders will be held accountable for their actions.”

The FBI and Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department both investigated the case.
