(Baltimore, MD) -- A plea agreement for Baltimore boxer Gervonta Davis has been turned down by a judge.

Judge Melissa Phinn rejected a plea deal that would have allowed Davis to avoid jail time and serve two months of home detention.

Davis is a suspect in a 2020 hit-and-run accident that injured four people.

Attorneys said the plea deal would have allowed Davis to continue to train and carry on with his life.

The judge's actions set the wheels in motion for Davis' trial to begin on December 12th.
