A man was placed on house arrest as a condition of a community control sentence given this week.

Justin K. Davis, 38, was placed on community control for five years during a sentencing hearing Tuesday. Davis pleaded guilty to a fourth degree felony domestic violence charge on April 26 stemming from a March 26 incident.

On that date, Urbana police responded to Davis’ residence on a report of domestic violence. An investigation revealed he was intoxicated and upset he could not open an alcoholic drink and knocked a female resident from a chair.

During their investigation police learned Davis had several firearms hidden inside a specially built-in compartment of a wall at the residence. A journal entry on the sentencing hearing states firearms and ammunition were forfeited to the Urbana Police Division.

The domestic violence charge was in a bill of information.

As part of community control, Davis was ordered to gain admission to and complete the West Central Community Based Correction Facility residential program and to obtain an assessment from and successfully complete any programming ordered by the West Central Program Incentive Program.

The court placed Davis on electronic monitored house arrest at a Quincy residence until he is admitted to the West Central Community Based Correctional Facility.

In addition to having no contact with the victim and their residence outside of court-approved exceptions, the court prohibited Davis from playing video games in which the object of the game is to use firearms or explosives to kill the enemy. Davis was ordered to give his assigned probation officer all internet gaming identifiers and passwords created to obtain access to the video games.

If community control is revoked, Davis faces an 18-month sentence to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections.
