Man Who Once Faced Double Murder Charge Pleads Guilty After Cocaine Found At His Residence

Sunday, March 9, 2014

Ivan Davis, who once faced a double murder charge, has pleaded guilty in Federal Court on a cocaine charge. The plea came after a large amount of the drug was found at his residence during a search by the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office on Dec. 18, 2012.

Acting on a search warrant, officers found a postal package that had just been delivered. It contained eight ounces of powder cocaine.

Officers also found a set of digital scales, sandwich baggies, and a sandwich bag containing eight individually wrapped bags of crack cocaine.

Total amount of cocaine at the residence was 132 grams.

Davis appeared before Federal Magistrate Bill Carter.

He will be sentenced by Judge Curtis Collier on June 6. He faces up to 20 years in prison.

Davis was charged with the December 2009 murders of Aric Moses and Jackie Davis, of Atlanta, who were shot while they sat in a white SUV in Chattanooga on Dec. 19, 2009. Charges were later dismissed after an eyewitness changed her story under oath.
