Rutledge Announces North Little Rock Man Sentenced for Crimes Involving Children
July 19, 2017
Facing up to 300 years in Department of Correction
LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge announced today that a Pulaski County man is facing up to 300 years in the Arkansas Department of Correction and a potential fine of up to $300,000 on child exploitation charges.
David Wayne Davis, 64, of North Little Rock, was found guilty by Pulaski County Circuit Judge Wendell Griffen of 30 counts of distributing, possessing or viewing matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving children.
“The actions of David Davis are disgusting,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “Partnerships across the state make it possible to get these criminals out of our neighborhoods and off the internet. This conviction shows that the State of Arkansas will hold these predators accountable and protect our children.”
Davis was arrested in 2015 on a search warrant executed by the Attorney General’s Cyber Crimes Unit. Attorneys from the Attorney General’s office were appointed by the 6th Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Larry Jegley as special deputy prosecutors. Davis is free on $25,000 bail until sentencing, which is scheduled for Sept. 11.
