Man given 18 years in confinement, theft cases

MATTHEW LEBLANC | The Journal Gazette

Allen County judges have ordered a Fort Wayne man to spend a total of 18 years in prison in separate cases. 

Mickey D. Davis, 26, was sentenced Tuesday to 16 years behind bars after a jury in October found him guilty of criminal confinement resulting in serious bodily injury.

Police said he punched and banged his girlfriend's head on the floor in April.

Allen Superior Court Judge David Zent sentenced him in that case. 

“This case shows that even if a victim is frightened or reluctant, we can still pursue justice for them,” Deputy Prosecutor Tasha Lee said in a statement.

Jurors found Davis guilty of theft in another case, and Judge Wendy Davis sentenced him to two years in prison, for a total of 18 years. 

Drug dealer gets 6 years, deported

A Fort Wayne man was ordered Tuesday to spend nearly six years in federal prison for drug distribution.

Carlos Prado, 40, sold two ounces of methamphetamine to a police informant in July 2016, according to a release from U.S. Attorney Thomas L. Kirsch II. He pleaded guilty to distributing the drug and was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Fort Wayne to 70 months behind bars. 

Prado will be deported at the end of his sentence, Kirsch said.
