QUINCY — A Quincy man was sentenced to 10 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections on Monday.

Donald Davis, 55, pled guilty on May 12 in Adams County Circuit Court to one count of possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine.

Davis was arrested and charged on April 14, 2021. The Quincy Police Department alleged he drove to meet a child under age 17 in southern Illinois to engage in a sex offense. He was charged with indecent solicitation of a child and traveling to meet a child. QPD officers later found the same day during a search of Davis’ home what was believed to be methamphetamine, other substances and drug paraphernalia.

The sex charges were dismissed in the plea agreement.

Noted in the sentencing by Judge Robert Adrian was Davis’ multiple past felony convictions, including a 2017 conviction for delivery of methamphetamine.

Davis was given credit for 44 days served in the Adams County Jail.  Davis had been free on $7,500 cash bond. He was ordered to reimburse the public defenders’ office $1,500.  Any money remaining after any fines and fees from this case was ordered to be applied to Davis’ previous cases, which had outstanding balances.
