CONROE - A career criminal who faced possible life in prison got off easy in court on Friday, and was home bragging about it on his computer a few hours later.
Jason Andrew Davis, 38, of Conroe appeared before 284th District Court of Judge Cara Wood on charges of first-degree felony delivery of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) and state jail felony possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine).
Davis was sentenced to 10 years probation, plus 200 hours community service.
His page on the social networking website Myspace.com, where in one spot he spells his name Jay-Sin, was updated after court. A note was added behind his name stating, “Whew, I made it. I can rest a little more easier now. Thanks to all of you who showed your support!!!!!!!”
His mood was changed to “accomplished” with a smiley face added.
Davis has a reason to smile.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations Unit arrested Jason Davis on these latest charges on April 24, 2008. The charges were enhanced because of Davis’ prior drug convictions.
He could speak with some authority on feeling accomplished, faring so well in court.
Police records show Davis, who is pushing 40, has a lengthy criminal history with multiple drug convictions for both possession and delivery of a controlled substance, as well as at least one conviction of aggravated assault causes bodily injury, for which he received 10 years probation.
In 2002 he pleaded guilty to one count of violation of a protective order in County Court at Law 4 and was sentenced to 30 days in jail plus fine and court costs. A second identical charge was dismissed on that date. (These charges do not represent a complete list.)
Davis’ MySpace page had several quotes. Some were not printable, but the top quote on Friday was, “If at first you don’t succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.”
There was no indication when the quote was added, but there was no denying Davis’ “accomplishment,” or reason to smile.
The drug enforcement officers who testified in Davis’ trial had no comment following sentencing. They were not smiling
