Greenville, MS – District Attorney W. Dewayne Richardson announced this week that Kelvin Lewis and Willie Davis pled guilty in this term of Washington County Circuit Court, each to two (2) counts of Aggravated Assault.
With Senior Circuit Court Judge Ashley Hines set to preside over their jury trials, both Lewis and Davis chose to plead guilty to the violent charges brought against them. Lewis and Davis were each sentenced to 20 years with the Mississippi Department of Corrections, with 15 of those years to be served behind bars.
The charges against Lewis and Davis stem from a 2019 incident on North 8th Street, wherein Lewis and Davis discharged handguns into a residence (believed to be the home of a rival gang member).
The case against Lewis and Davis was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney M. Austin Frye, who recognized the diligence and dedication of the Greenville Police Department in their handling of the shooting. Frye stated “[A]s a community, citizens of Greenville are exhausted from gun violence in the streets where we live, work and attend church. The District Attorney’s Office, along with local law enforcement professionals, is committed to sending a clear message to offenders that this city simply won’t stand for senseless violence, and with every offender that is convicted of a gun related crime, we will see a decisive change in Greenville and Washington County.”
