The witness tampering charge stemmed from Davis’ discovery in October 2018 that his son had been subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury and he tried to persuade his son to provide false testimony.
Davis was a detective sergeant with the N.J. State Police who also owned and operated the Get Organized Tax & Accounting tax preparation business. From 2011 to 2016, Davis and co-conspirator, Kyna Felder-Ruiz, filed fake income tax returns for clients. For tax years 2012 through 2014, Davis also underreported income from the tax business.
Davis retired from the State Police in 2016 after 28 years.
Davis was also fined $10,000 and ordered to pay $71,558 in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service. Felder-Ruiznis was scheduled to be sentenced this month after her guilty plea.
