Witness sentenced: A witness who pleaded guilty to perjury last month was sentenced yesterday to five years in prison.
The witness, Jermaine Davis, admitted lying during a murder trial this year that ended in a hung jury. Last month, Davis pleaded guilty in D.C. Superior Court in exchange for an agreed-upon sentence of five years.
Such a plea is subject to the judge's approval. If the judge rejects the sentence, the guilty plea does not go through.
