Beloit Man Sentenced to 30 Months on Cocaine Charge

MADISON, WIS. -- John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Paris Davis, 30, Beloit, Wis., was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Judge William Conley to 30 months in federal prison for selling cocaine.  Davis pleaded guilty to this charge on July 20, 3015.

Davis sold cocaine to a confidential informant three times between February 2, 2015 and April 23, 2015.  At the time, he was on federal supervised release for selling heroin.

 The charges against Davis were the result of an investigation conducted by G-ROC, a task force formed through the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Safe Streets Violent Crime Initiative, to address gang and drug-related violence in Rock County through the coordination of investigations among local and federal law enforcement agencies.  Its members include the FBI; Rock County Sheriff’s Office; Rock County District Attorney’s Office; Beloit Police Department; and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. 

In the past 18 months, more than 20 people have been charged and convicted of a federal drug or gun crime as the result of G-Roc investigations. The prosecution of this case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth Altman.
