Crime, Law and JusticeDoug DavisJustice System

Three people who helped cop killer Maurice Clemmons after he shot and killed four Lakewood police officers have been sentenced to prison. 

The longest of the sentences was given to Eddie Davis, who received more than a decade for helping Maurice Clemmons after the shooting and for gun charges.

Pierce County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Arend sentenced Clemmons' friend Doug Davis to 7½ years on weapons charges and his aunt, Letrecia Nelson, to more than six years.

The sentences were far shorter than prosecutors wanted. They wanted 25 years for Eddie Davis, 20 years for Doug Davis and 15 years for Nelson.

In all seven people were accused of helping Clemmons after the November 2009 shooting. Five have been convicted, one was acquitted and another, alleged getaway driver Darcus Allen, awaits trial.
