MONROE, Mich. (WXYZ) - A former Michigan State Police Lieutenant is going to prison for 2 to 20 years.
Family members were with him in court and very emotional as 50-year-old Luke Davis plead guilty to Racketeering and had 23 other charges dropped.
He was charged with another police officer and a civilian with stealing or selling property seized in drug raids through the Office of Monroe Narcotics Investigations.
Davis was suspended with pay in 2010 when the 7 Action News Investigators first reported on the case.
Davis took the plea deal this year and then changed his mind and wanted to withdraw it.
Today, Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Michael Le Beau denied the request and imposed the sentence of 2 to 20 years - ordering Davis in custody immediately.
Experts say it may be difficult for the Michigan Department of Corrections to decide where to have him serve the sentence because Davis could come in contact with people he put in prison.
Davis has been stripped of his police certification - meaning he can't work again as a cop and his pension has been revoked.
