For his hit-and-run incident in November 2020 in Baltimore, Gervonta Davis was sentenced on Friday to 200 hours of community service, three years of probation, and 90 days of home detention.
Davis’ longtime trainer and father figure Calvin Ford’s house in Baltimore will be where he serves out his sentence. Additionally, he is required to complete his civic duty in Davis’ hometown of Baltimore.
Dylan Segelbaum of The Baltimore Banner was the one to break the news of Davis’ punishment on Friday.
Segelbaum claims that Baltimore Circuit Judge Althea M. Handy reprimanded Davis during his sentence hearing for failing to apologise to Jyair Smith, whose car Davis’ SUV struck two and a half years prior.
“Three words. I am sorry,” Handy stated to Davis at court. “And he was not man enough to do that… He’s shown absolutely now remorse.”
On February 16, Davis, 28, entered a guilty plea to four counts relating to that incident. One of the biggest names in boxing forfeited his right to a trial that day and entered a guilty plea to charges including abandoning the scene of an injury accident, failing to find the owner of property damage that was left unattended, driving while intoxicated, and running a red light.
Superstar in the ring, but questionable character outside.
