Damion Davis gets the max for rape

Damion Davis has been sentenced to one-and-a-third to four years in prison for third-degree rape of Qua’mere Rogers‘s mother. (That’s the same sentence he got for attacking another woman with a metal pick in an unrelated case; he’s doing time for that right now. The rape sentence will be consecutive to the assault sentence.) Qua’mere’s mom was sixteen years old when she had him. For a long time Davis was presumed to be the child’s father, but it turns out he wasn’t. In any case, Qua’mere’s mother went back to her family and left Qua’mere in Davis’s so-called “care” the year after his birth.

I’ve written about this case several times before; it’s similar to the more recent case of Dwight Stallings. Davis is the prime suspect in Qua’mere’s disappearance, which wasn’t even reported until July 2009, over half a year after he was last seen. He’s told different contradictory stories to explain what happened to Qua’mere, and he’s a pathological liar with many alias names and a long history of extreme violence. In 2008, he stabbed his former roommate in the neck, supposedly because the man had been asking questions about where Qua’mere was. (Davis got seven years in prison for that, another sentence he’s serving at present.)

You can see a film of Davis talking about aliens and conspiracies at his sentencing here. He’s been feigning insanity for the past few months, trying to escape responsibility for his crimes, but the shrinks have called him on it numerous times. He actually missed his entire rape trial because of this, according to this article:

After growling loudly and screaming in the courtroom, Davis was ordered removed from court by Judge Anthony Aloi. The judge decided the trial would go on without Davis in court because Davis had given up his right to be present by his disruptive conduct.

The police have said they think Qua’mere was killed and they may prosecute Davis for murder eventually. They’re still investigating, and biding their time. It’s not like Davis is going to go anywhere.

That poor boy. It seems no one ever loved him in his poor, brutish and short life.

    In case you haven’t seen it, there’s an article in the new People magazine about Marx Panama Barnes (now Steve Carter). I just had time to skim it, but apparently his mother had some kind of mental breakdown and ended up in a psych ward under a false name (she later left AMA). Marx wound up in foster care and was eventually put up for adoption when his mom never came back. Luckily he was adopted and it seems he had a happy life with a good family. He got curious about his background after the Carlina White case was solved and saw his AP on a missing persons website. Would love to know whatever happened to his mom.

    Hi Meaghan, this is totally off topic, but I was going through some of the older cases listed tonight, and I noticed something odd. In 1979, there is a Cynthia Campbell Woolard listed missing Feb 1 from Cape Coral, FL. Then there is a Cynthia Campbell Spragg listed missing Jan 1, from North Fort Myers, FL. They both have the same picture. Is this the same person? They are about a year apart age wise. One has no real details, the other one says she left her purse behind and was arguing with her husband. I’m just curious.

      I’ll be damned, I hadn’t noticed that. They almost certainly are the same person, but I’ll have to dig around to sort this out.

        I haven’t noticed before, I think I just did now because they are only a few cases apart. Every now and then I go and run through old cases to refresh my memory and keep details in mind for unidentified….I just saw it now. Maybe she was married more than once or something, or maybe two reports were filed by different people. I don’t know. You are the expert on this sort of stuff! Hopefully there are some answers out there.
