WBFO/AM 970 News

Brian Davis, the former Ellicott District representative on the Common Council, could seek a plea deal at a court appearance this week.

Davis faces embezzlement charges for scheming to redirect nearly $50 thousand in federal funds for personal use. According to the News, Davis could face up to ten years in prison, though a deal would lessen that sentence. It could also require that he testify in the federal investigation into City Hall's use of federal funds allocated through the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Davis left office two years ago over campaign finance violations.

He is due in court on Tuesday.

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
