Two months ago, nineteen year-old Quartavious Davis was sentenced to 162 years in prison. The budding genius participated in a string of armed robberies in Miami:
Quartavious Davis is still shocked by what happened to him in federal court two months ago.
“My first offense, and they gave me all this time,” said Davis, a pudgy African American with dreadlocks who spoke with Reuters at the Federal Detention Center in Miami. “Might just as well say I’m dead.”
Davis was convicted of participating in a string of armed robberies in the Miami area in 2010. His accomplices testified against him, saying he carried a gun during their crimes and discharged it at a dog that chased them after one of their burglaries.
My first offense? I read “string of armed robberies.” Can’t do the time, don’t do the crime.
