  • A St. James man found guilty of assaulting a police officer and a woman with a medieval-type club and a golf club was sentenced to 25 years in prison earlier this week.
    The sentence for 23-year-old Scott Marshall Davis Jr. of St. James was handed down Monday by 11th Circuit Judge Dan Pelikan in St. Charles County.
    Davis was convicted on Sept. 14, 2013, by a St. Charles County jury of two counts of assault, both Class A felonies, as well as armed criminal action
    The sentence hearing Monday included testimony from Catherine Naber and O’Fallon Police Officer Thomas Kenyon, who were both injured during the incident on April 18, 2012, in O’Fallon.
    The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that during testimony at the sentencing hearing, Naber testified that she gave Davis a drug she thought was LSD on the day of the incident to cheer up Davis after a death in his family. Davis attacked her with a medieval-type spiked club and a golf club. Naber suffered a broken jaw and incurred thousands of dollars in dental bills.
