LONDON, Ky. — David Lee Davis, 47 of Williamsburg, Ky., was sentenced this week, to 210 months in federal prison, by United States District Court Judge Gregory F. Van Tatenhove, for conspiracy to distribute oxycodone and oxymorphone.
Davis previously admitted that he had obtained controlled substances by purchasing other people’s prescriptions, and then selling the pills. A search warrant executed in Whitley County, Kentucky uncovered a digital video recorder. The recorder revealed that approximately 100 drug transactions had occurred from within the residence. Davis was a participant in several of those transactions and pled guilty to the charge in July of 2018. Davis has multiple prior drug trafficking convictions.
Under federal law, Davis must serve 85 percent of his prison sentence; and upon his release, he will be under the supervision of the United States Probation Office for six years.
Robert M. Duncan, Jr., United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky, and D. Christopher Evans, Special Agent in Charge, Drug Enforcement Administration, jointly made the announcement.
The investigation was conducted by the DEA. The United States was represented by Assistant United States Attorney Jason D. Parman.
