Ricky Davis had known the girl since she was a baby. He wasn't quite her uncle, but he might as well have been. His brother fathered four of her siblings, and Davis was close with the family.

On August 19, 2012, Davis and the girl's family went to church together. Afterward, they gathered at her home, where Davis asked if she wanted to spend the night at the east Fort Worth home he shared with his live-in girlfriend and her three children. She agreed.

Later in the day, after she'd arrived, Davis sent his girlfriend and the kids out to run errands. The house empty, Davis took the girl into the bedroom and raped her, according to evidence presented at Davis' trial.

When he was done, he took the girl to a bar in the 3300 block of East Lancaster Avenue. He told her that she was going to make some money for him and that she'd better say "yes" to any man he brought out to the car, where he told her to wait.

Inside, he approached a couple of men who were drinking and said he had a young girl outside who'd have sex for $50. They went out to look, but declined the offer when they realized that Davis meant what he said, that she was only a child.

One of them told the bouncer at the bar, who rescued the girl and hid her in the bar until police arrived. Davis, emerging from the establishment to find his car empty, drove home. He choked and beat his girlfriend when she asked what had happened to the girl.

Davis was convicted by a Tarrant County jury of child rape and human trafficking charges. It took jurors 19 minutes on Wednesday to hand down a 99-year sentence.

In a press release, prosecutors describe Davis as "an ex-con (robbery, burglary, assault, etc.) with an obscene gesture tattooed on his neck." It shows a raised middle finger, accompanied by the words "Asshole since 1983."

You sure have been posting lots of black crime stories in the past couple of months, Nicholson. What happened? Too much to ignore any longer? Tired of getting labeled a naive white-guilt libtard propagandist? Starting to realize that your "progressive" religion is detrimental to your children's futures? What happend LOL

A story in which the (prospective) Johns are the good guys? This is new territory for the Observer, where the hookers are usually the ones with a heart of gold.

Methinks you could save the good taxpayers of the great state a bunch of money and just shot him as soon as the jundgment came back.

Good on the bouncer and the patrons who were not too drunk to see what was before their eyes.

$50 is about the same price as a carton of cigarettes which ironically enough is what it's going to cost to have sex with Ricky Davis where he is going. Hell, he even has a born on date tattooed on him so people will know the exact vintage of his asshole.

@yrlibsnaive Just a quick note to see if you read the sad article and if so how did you jump to attacking the MESSENGER and how does the rape of a young child make the messenger a "naïve white-guilt libtard"? 

Now allow me to get down on your level and talk to you in terms you may be more familiar with.   If your current buttplug is too large, try a smaller one for a while.  Allow you B-hole to expand prior to inserting something that inhibits blood flow to your brain.

@Joshisbackonthecopenhagen So from your comment I'm guessing you're thinking he can't be rehabilitated in the minimum 33 years he'll serve?  There's no way this guy could be any more bitter about the world when he's done serving eh?

@roo_ster It's in a super trashy part of town, too -- kind of like Pleasant Grove or Samuell Blvd. Human decency can prevail even in the shadiest of settings.

@DirtyP1 @Joshisbackonthecopenhagen NO HE CAN"T! HE DOESN"T DESERVE A CHANCE TO REHABILITATE!!!!!  Read the article again!  Read what he did!  That girl will have mental issues her whole life!  She will never get her virginity back!  And you want the guy to get rehabilitated.  Keep chewing your Copenhagen Josh.  You are an idiot!!!!!!!!!!!!!
