June 8, 2016 -- Acting Westchester County District Attorney James A. McCarty announced that Samuel Davis (DOB 10-22-77) 10 Rich Avenue, Mount Vernon, New York was

found guilty today after a trial of:

  • one count of Criminal Sexual Act in the First Degree, a Class ”B” Violent Felony
  • seven counts of Rape in the Second Degree,  Class “D”  Violent Felonies
  • two counts of Criminal Sexual Act in the Second Degree,  Class “D” Violent Felonies

  • three counts of Rape in the Third Degree, Class “E” Felonies

in the repeated and long term sexual assault of a child he coached between 2012 and 2015.

Mount Vernon Police became aware of the abuse in April of 2015, after word of the sexual relationship between the defendant, an assistant coach on a private track team, and one of the children on the team, began to circulate amongst her team community, and after the child told a relative of the defendant’s prolonged abuse of her. The investigation then involved the Special Prosecutions Division of the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office, who worked with the Mount Vernon Police Department and the Westchester County Child Advocacy Center, to investigate the case.  The investigation revealed that the defendant also acted as a volunteer track coach at the child’s high school in the Bronx. 

The defendant’s remand continues.

He is due to be sentenced on Aug. 16, 2016. The defendant faces a possible sentence of up to twenty-five years or a minimum term of five years on the class “B” felony. The defendant faces a possible sentence of up to seven years on the class “D” felonies, and up to four years on the Class “E” Felonies.

Assistant District Attorney Mary Clark DiRusso, Deputy Bureau Chief of the Domestic Violence Bureau, and Owein Levin of the Special Prosecutions Division prosecuted the case.
