Davis could face harsh sentence
Former Ellicott District Council member Brian Davis will face sentencing for his theft of public funds next month.
Through a plea deal reached in May, Davis filed an admission to stealing $48,000 while serving as a public official. He will be required to make full restitution when US Judge Richard Arcara hands down the sentence. Federal guidelines allow for a sentence of up to ten years in prison for the crime.
Federal prosecutors are pushing for a sentence of at least two years in prison.
Davis supporters are urging leniency, including probation and community service.
