---- — A Wayne County man was sentenced to state prison Dec. 31.

Gregory Howard Davis, 28, of Corydon, was accused of second degree sexual abuse, a B felony and lascivious acts with a child-solicitation, a D felony. Both charges allegedly occurred May 1, 2013.

Judge Gary G. Kimes in the Wayne County Courthouse on Dec. 31 sentenced Davis to 10 years in state prison, fine and the requirement to register as a sex offender on the Sex Offender Registry on the reduced charge of lascivious acts with a child-fondle or touch, a C felony. The original charge was second degree sexual abuse, B felony.

The court Dec. 31 dismissed the original D felony charge of lascivious acts with a child-solicitation.

Davis owes Wayne County $1,530 for this case.

Davis' criminal background includes three other felony cases. In all three cases, Davis entered negotiated, voluntary guilty pleas.

In 2009, Davis was charged with prohibited acts-schedule I, II or III controlled substance, C felony. He was sentenced to prison suspended to probation on the reduced charge of prohibited acts-schedule IV or V controlled substance, aggravated misdemeanor.

Again in 2009, Davis was charged with third degree burglary, D felony. He was sentenced to prison suspended to probation for the same charge.

And in 2008, Davis was charged with forgery, D felony. He was sentenced to jail on the reduced charge of forgery, aggravated misdemeanor. The court dismissed seven counts of forgery, D felonies.

Davis still owes $1,203.74 for the case from 2008.
