Man gets 22 years for bank robberies in three states


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WSPA) – A Georgia man was sentenced on Monday to 22 years in prison for a string of armed robberies he committed in North Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia.

In September 2022, Johnny Jermaine Davis, 40, of Kennesaw Georgia pleaded guilty to six counts of armed robbery and one count of brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence. He was sentenced to 22 years in prison followed by five years of probation and he will have to pay $65,000 in restitution.

According to court documents, between January and May 2021, Davis robbed seven banks in three states, including two in Asheville. Davis brandished a gun in each of the robberies, and fired it during one robbery, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of North Carolina.
