A 29-year-old career criminal from Spanaway faces 15 years to life in prison after being convicted Thursday of three charges in federal court.
U.S. District Judge Ronald B. Leighton is to sentence Bernard Curtis Davis on Jan. 28.
A jury found Davis guilty of being a felon in possession of a firearm, being a felon in possession of ammunition and possessing marijuana with the intent to distribute. The jury deliberated eight hours after a three-day trial.
Davis was indicted in March after Pierce County sheriff’s deputies searched his home in connection with a strong-arm robbery at a convenience store. The robbery victim provided deputies with a license plate number for a car registered to Davis.

Because Davis was on probation, detectives searched his home and found 12 baggies of suspected marijuana, a scale, a rifle and ammunition in his bedroom and a storage room.
Davis had prior felony convictions in Pierce County for two robberies, burglary, assault, unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. His first conviction occurred in 2001.
