Defendant: Ian Davis (DOB 04/10/87)

Nov. 20, 2019 – Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. announced Ian Davis of Mount Vernon was found guilty Tuesday (11/19) of presenting police with a forged document following a weeklong jury trial before Westchester County Court Judge David Zuckerman.

Specifically, the jury found Davis guilty of Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument in the Second Degree, a class D felony, and Aggravated Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle in the Second Degree, an unclassified misdemeanor.

Davis is scheduled for sentencing Jan. 8, 2020.

On April 8, 2016, Ian Davis went to the Village of Irvington Police Department to obtain an impounded 2011 Land Rover. While there, he submitted a forged lien release to the Irvington Police in an attempt to get the vehicle out of impound despite a hold having been placed it.

Police told Davis, they could not release the vehicle to him due to the hold and the defendant was also informed his license was suspended. Despite that warning, the defendant drove away in another vehicle, a 2012 BMW X5, in front of the Village Police Department headquarters. Irvington Police officers observed the defendant driving and arrested him for driving with a suspended license. They subsequently realized the document was a forgery.

 In compliance with the Rules of Professional Conduct, Rule 3.6, you are advised that a charge is merely an accusation and that a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
