LIVINGSTON COUNTY — The infamous David Homer, who was repeatedly tasered in 2007 in an Avon police station after being violent and out of control, is back in a Livingston County Jail and faces a possible life sentence.
Homer is locked up on charges of criminal contempt in the 2nd degree after allegedly violating a restraining order obtained by his girlfriend. Homer was arrested on December 11, when he allegedly assaulted and threatened to kill his on-and-off girlfriend in Mount Morris.
According to a copy of the police report on the current charges, obtained by the GeneseeSun.com, after he became aggressive with the arresting officer, Homer once again found himself staring down the barrel of a taser. Homer was not tased this time, though, and after calming down was arrested without incident.
Homer, who has 13 prior felony convictions and 5 misdemeanor convictions, was offered a plea deal by the Livingston County DA’s office, for 9 months in County jail. He turned down that offer and instead chose to go to trial. If Homer is convicted, and is categorized as a persistent felony offender, he would face a minimum sentence of 15 to life or a maximum of 25 to life in prison.
Homer is scheduled to be back in court in March.
