A 19-year-old Headland teenager accused of attempted murder, robbery and kidnapping learned his fate today.
Andrevis Davis was found guilty of one count of first degree robbery, two counts of attempted murder and six counts of first degree kidnapping.
The white, all female jury came to the decision after watching a video recorded confession by Davis and video captured during the crime.
In the recorded confession, he admitted to shooting two Dothan police officers on March 28 at a Hobo Pantry in Dothan and taking the store clerk and two customers hostage.
“I think the video tape was very important. It showed the jurors exactly how the real crimes occurred anytime businesses can do that to protect their employees it's very important. The confession they worked hard, we would of won the case without the confession cause the evidence was overwhelming,” said District Attorney Doug Valeska.
Davis chose to be sentenced immediately and will serve 99 years for each count. He does have an opportunity for parole.
“Instead of giving him 25 years the thing we've been trying to tell the community is if you run all those cases concurrent it's just free crime, you might as well of not prosecuted him because there were three or four different victims,” said Valeska.
His attorney says he expects there will be an appeal.
“A difficult case for all involved and the jury had a hard decision to make and i respect the deliberations of the jury,” said Jack Blumenfeld.
In addition to his sentence, Davis also was ordered to pay a $5,000 fine for each count plus medical expenses.
