One sex offender has definitely learned the consequences that words can carry. According to CBS News, Devon Naeem Davis recently received an additional two years behind bars for an insensitive remark he made at the time of his sentencing back in May.

On that particular day, he appeared in a Washington County Circuit Court room where he was sentenced to four years in prison for indecent exposure and second-degree assault against a pre-teen girl. Following the sentencing, the man reportedly turned to the mother of the victim and said, “bang, bang.” The shocking comment caused the judge to ask him to repeat what he’d said. Although he stated that he said, “dang, dang” the judge reportedly refused to believe his claim.

So on Thursday, December 11, Davis appeared before Circuit Judge Viki M. Pauler where he reportedly plead guilty to retaliation against a witness. Needless to say, Judge Pauler had no reservation about expressing her disdain for Davis’ careless comments.

According to Herald Mail Media, here’s a brief exchange of the conversation that took place on Thursday between Judge Pauler and Assistant Public Defender Thomas Tamm:

“That is not believable,” Wright said. “Mr. Davis, this disturbs me greatly and lying about it doesn’t help.”

“This court doesn’t take very kindly to threatening witnesses,” Pauler said Thursday before imposing the sentence.

“Mr. Davis had a very dysfunctional family life,” Tamm said.
