The three count indictment against Davis was for using city owned fueled for his personal vehicle, having the city of Southaven reimburse him for his annual contribution for a political action committee he never paid, and orchestrating the purchase of a vehicle at a reduced price that was originally leased by the city.
"An indictment does not remove an election official in Mississippi from office; it is simply the first step in the process. He will have his day in court. I'm confident that we will prove our case as we did before the Grand Jury this morning," said Pickering.
Davis is out of jail on a $3,500 bond. His trial date has not been set, but Davis is expected in court for a different case set for Jan. 28 for misuse of the city credit card.
