Corey Davis takes plea deal in Human Trafficking case

27-year-old still faces kidnapping, rape and sexual torture charges

Tuesday’s court appearance of 27-year-old Corey Davis gave some closure for his victims.

Davis pleaded guilty to Human Trafficking charges. He faced charges for kidnapping, rape and sexual torture. 

His taking a plea deal came as a surprise to the DA's office, but with the amount of evidence against him, his attorneys felt it was best for their client.

Asst. DA Angie Hamilton said, "What's more troubling is we know what he did to those three victims. What we don't know is how many other victims are out there that never came forward." 

Piles of evidence against Corey Davis were never presented in court. They consisted of forensic reports, cell phone records and GPS tracking from devices Davis used during his crime spree. 

Hamilton said, "It's all very telling of who he was contacting and what he was doing during this time. I'm certain there's other victims out there." 

Davis also lived life as a family man. He worked daily, left his family in the middle of the night to commit the crimes, and would return home to his  now ex-wife and stepchildren. 

Davis had no comment.

Davis’ plea deal means that the victims won't have to go on the stand relive their horrific ordeals again. 

Asst. DA Angie Hamilton said, "Not only were these ladies…sexually tortured and abused, just the trauma of how it happened too, that they were kidnapped, they were bound, they were left and they did not know what was going to happen to them or if they were going to survive this event. I am very glad that they don't have to tell their story."
