A man who was convicted of rape of a child, attempted rape of a child, seven counts of aggravated sexual battery, two counts of child abuse, and one count of attempted solicitation of a minor in Rutherford County recently filed an appeal in the Court of Criminal Appeals. David Neal Davis suggested he had ineffective assistance of counsel during his trial. Davis received a 20-year sentence and later insisted that his case was not adequately investigated.
The courts disagreed with the petitioner and Davis will remain behind bars.
The 69-year old man is listed as a "Violent" sex offender. He is housed in a West Tennessee prison at this time. His last Murfreesboro address was on Moccasin Trail in the Riverview Subdivision.
