A former ranger with Hopi Resource Enforcement Services has been convicted by a federal jury of sexually assaulting a female who was in his custody, and then destroying evidence to cover up his crime. The FBI says 25-year-old Mackenzie Davis arrested the victim on November 15th, 2016 for DUI in Navajo County. During a nearly two-hour transport to a detention center, Davis pulled over onto the side of the road and sexually assaulted the suspect and took pictures with his cellphone. The picture was later erased. Another witness testified that he engaged in similar conduct with her five years prior, when he wasn’t working in law enforcement. Davis was convicted of violating the suspect’s civil rights, abusive sexual contact in Indian Country and destruction of evidence. Sentencing is set for February 24th. Davis faces up to 23 years in prison.
