Convicted Killer Won’t Have To Pay Restitution

ELKTON, Md. (AP) — A judge has ruled a man who stabbed a widower dozens of times does not have to pay restitution to the dead man’s family.

Cecil County Circuit Court Administrative Judge V. Michael Whelan ruled Monday that John Wayne Davis, 31, does not have to pay $20,000 to the relatives of John R. Fleming, 71.

That sum would cover funeral expenses and other costs.

The Cecil Whig reports that Whelan said Davis’ circumstances do not meet standard factors in deciding such cases. He said Davis has no income, no assets and is serving a life sentence.

Davis pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the slaying of Fleming during a robbery in December 2010.

    Isn’t this the case with all murderers that are Bl;ack & or indigent?

      No I am from Cecil County, what they failed to mention is that the victim was actually a child molester, who regulary allowed drug addicts and prostitutes to live with him so he could trade his pills for sex.

    What is wrong with these “Judges” and I use the term judges loosley.

    No Bernard. This is the case with most murderers that have no job, no money or no conscience. Because he is black has nothing to do with the judges decision. If that was the case, he would have thrown the book at him like they do most black criminals. White society doesn’t give black criminals a break. You should know that. That’s exactly why all the prisons are filled with black criminals. It is not equal justice here in the United States. A black man and white man can have the exact same charges but the white judge will be more lenient with one of his own. That’s the way the system works.

    Sharon, You are full of s….t. Blacks are in prison because they are the ones breaking the law. You better read up on your history girl or you are probably one of the coons that just closes a blind eye & says “My baby is a good boy, he don’t do nuttin like that” You stupid moolie.

      Yea this person killed a child molesting pedophile and got a life sentence, I watch the on first 48 killing each other non stop getting 15 yrs or less, I guess its a good way to decimate an unproductive class of people.
