The State Attorney's Office says evidence presented at trial showed Eugene Davis worked with others for a year to distribute hundreds of kilograms of cocaine and crack cocaine in Hillsborough County.
Davis, a prolific crack dealer, has been known for purchasing multiple kilograms of cocaine and cooking it into crack cocaine. Often described as "flashy and flamboyant," Davis used his drug proceeds to fund an extravagant lifestyle of high-end cars, expensive jewelry, and thousands of dollars in cash.
The court also concluded that Davis was a career offender who obstructed justice when he attempted to intimidate witnesses by listing their names in news outlets and on social media, labeling them "snitches".
Davis pleaded guilty on May 16, 2013.
