2nd brother sentenced in robbery at motel

PEABODY — The second of a pair of brothers convicted last summer in the violent holdup of a Peabody motel clerk was sentenced to 12 to 15 years in state prison yesterday.

Curtis Davis, 39, of Salem had been indicted as a habitual offender, but under an agreement reached between his lawyer and a prosecutor yesterday, that charge was dropped in exchange for his agreement to serve the lengthy state prison term.

Curtis Davis and his younger brother, Clovicel Davis, 31, of Beverly, were found guilty in July of the 2009 unarmed robbery at the Plaza Motel on Route 1.

The pair showed up there around 4 a.m. on the morning of Sept. 10, 2009. A clerk, a Brazilian immigrant who worked multiple jobs to support his family, was there alone.

The two were caught after police spotted a car fitting the description given by the victim in downtown Peabody a short time after the robbery.

The pair took cash and a gold chain in the holdup.

Clovicel Davis is serving a six-to-eight-year prison term for the holdup.

Curtis Davis’ lawyer, Scott Gleason, told Judge Timothy Feeley yesterday that his client “is going to attempt to keep his life on track” after his release from prison.
