MOUNT VERNON, NY — A track coach who raped and abused one of the girls he coached for years — both on a private team and at her high school — has been handed a 100-year prison sentence.
Acting Westchester County District Attorney James A. McCarty announced that Samuel Davis of Rich Avenue, Mount Vernon, New York, was sentenced Tuesday to 100 years in state prison after having been found guilty at trial in June 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
One count of Sexual Abuse in the First Degree, a Class “D” Violent Felony
Three counts of Rape in the Third Degree, Class “E” Felonies
Prosecutors said Davis, 38 abused the high-schooler repeatedly between 2012 and 2015.
Mount Vernon Police became aware of the abuse in April of 2015, after word of the sexual relationship between Davis, an assistant coach on a private track team, and one of the children on the team began to circulate among her team community and after the child told a relative of his prolonged abuse of her.
