Jury Sentences Davis to 18 years for Solicitation of Murder

Aransas County—Johnny Lee Davis, age 48, was found guilty by a jury of his peers in the 36th Judicial District Court on Thursday, February 9, 2017.  During the punishment phase, the jury sentenced Mr. Davis to 18 years in prison and gave him a $2,000 fine.  The State’s Indictment included solicitation of the murder of Jenna Hernandez in 2012.   Without the bravery and dedication of the Aransas County Jurors, the Aransas Pass Police Department, the Aransas County Sheriff’s Department, and the CCPD Gang Division, this outcome would not have been possible.
