30 Years for selling fake Masters badges

A 46-year-old man was sentenced to 30 years in prison Wednesday for selling 15 phony Masters badges for $24,000.

James Lee Davis was convicted April 23 of forgery and violating the state Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.

Davis was arrested March 13, 2001, after a search of his home turned up 26 fake badges to be sold to ticket-sales companies.

District Attorney Danny Craig said Davis' sentence must be served without the possibility of parole because he has six prior felony convictions -- mostly for theft and forgery.
