Prosecutors have asked a judge to revoke the supervised term of release for Jimmy Davis, accused of raping a 15-year-old girl on St. Croix just days after being freed from custody, according to documents filed in U.S. District Court.
Davis, 42, has a lengthy criminal history and accumulated “a significant amount of ‘jail credit,’” while awaiting trial in several recent criminal cases, according to a motion filed Tuesday by Assistant U.S. Attorney Alphonso Andrews Jr.
He was sentenced in November to 24 months behind bars for violation of supervised release from a previous February 2018 conviction, and subsequently sentenced in two additional matters in December and February, according to the motion.
After sentencing, “the Federal Bureau of Prisons determined that Defendant had completed his federal sentences and released him from the Metropolitan Detention Center in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, on March 26,” Andrews wrote.
Davis failed to check in with the probation office within three days of returning to St. Croix as required by his release, and probation officers obtained an arrest warrant on March 31, according to the motion.
On April 3, a 15-year-old girl reported that Davis entered her home and raped her earlier that day. V.I. Police arrested him on April 7 and charged him with aggravated rape and other crimes, according to the motion.
That case remains pending in V.I. Superior Court, and Andrews said federal prosecutors are seeking to revoke his supervised release.
V.I. Bureau of Corrections spokesman Winthrop Maduro said Tuesday that Davis is currently being held at Golden Grove Adult Correctional Facility on St. Croix.
