Love Davis Jr. was convicted by a jury of carjacking and evading an officer with willful disregard.
On March 24, 2015, Davis pushed a 58 year-old woman out of his way and jumped into her car, which was parked at a gas station on Auburn Blvd. and Watt Ave. The victim struggled with Davis, but he was able drive away, dragging the victim several feet on the pavement. Soon after, Davis was spotted by the California Highway Patrol. A pursuit began that lasted nearly an hour and covered four counties, including Sacramento, Placer, Yolo, and Sonoma. Davis drove nearly 110 mph, drove the wrong way, ignored stop signs and stop lights, passed on the shoulder and center divider, wove in and out of traffic, and finally crashed into the concrete median near the intersection of 65th and Highway 50. He was arrested and positively identified by the victim.
Davis’ criminal history includes two prior strike convictions for robbery and first-degree burglary. He also has multiple past convictions for possession of stolen cars, evading police, theft, resisting arrest, possession of stolen property, possession of tear gas, and possession of meth in prison.
Davis faces a maximum potential sentence of 55 years to life in prison. Sentencing is set for September 2, 2016, at 9:00 a.m. in Department 21 before the Honorable Steve White.
