Ex-cop gets two years for role in theft from non-profit

Jordan Davis, a former Minneapolis cop and the son of Community Action of Minneapolis CEO Bill Davis, was sentenced to two years in prison for his role in stealing more than $140,000 from the non-profit organization.

Paul Walsh of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Jordan Davis, 36, was convicted by a jury last summer for plotting with his father to be paid more than $140,000 for a no-show job at an ice cream shop.

Bill Davis, who was also convicted in the scheme, used CAM funds to pay his son for a job at a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream shop operated by CAM near the University of Minnesota. Ben & Jerry’s waived its standard franchise fees so CAM could operate the store to provide job and entrepreneurial training to underprivileged youth.
