A 26-year-old Detroit, MI, man was sentenced to 180 days in jail for forgery and identity fraud charges.

Gage A. Davis II appeared in Holt County District Court on Sept. 10 and was charged with second-degree forgery, a Class 4 felony, and identity fraud, a Class 1 misdemeanor. 

He was given credit for serving 94 days in Holt County Jail prior to sentencing. Davis was ordered to pay $147 in court costs. 

Following his release from prison, the defendant was sentenced to 9 months of post-release supervision. 

According to court documents, Davis was arrested on June 1 in Ainsworth for charges of conspiracy, identity theft, theft by deception and possession of stolen property. 

The defendant allegedly attempted to purchase an electronic device with a fake driver’s license. Several electronic devices were later found when his vehicle was searched. 

After he was arrested in Brown County, Davis was identified as a person of interest in several fraud cases in Lexington, Norfolk and O’Neill involving Viaero Wireless and U.S. Cellular. 

The Nebraska State Patrol, Brown County Sheriff’s Office and Holt County Sheriff’s Office assisted with the case.
