Quartavious Davis, First-Time Offender With 162-Year Prison Term, Gets Appeal  

NBC News By : ERIK ORTIZ

After he was convicted for his role in a string of armed robberies, Quartavious Davis paid dearly: A federal judge in Florida sentenced him to almost 162 years in prison.

Davis was 18 and 19 when the crimes took place in 2010, and had no prior arrests.

The sentencing was the last time his mother, Darlene Bell, laid eyes on her son. The judge's punishment still stings her. "It was tough to hear as his mother. I felt betrayed by the system," she said. "I wanted to die. My son wanted to die." - Referenced Article
