ELIZABETHTOWN, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police recently busted a Bladen County attorney for having drugs… then a day later, they charged the woman he was with, with prostitution.
That attorney is K. Robert Davis, known to most at the Bladen County courthouse as Rob. According to Wilmington Police, he was found apparently overdosed back in January.
A viewer e-mail tipped us off to drug charges against Davis and Jenna Marie Autry… a 19-year-old woman who also faces drug charges as well as a prostitution charge. According to a relative of hers, who wants to remain anonymous, the two met more than a year ago... when Davis was defending her dad.
Police say Davis and Autry were at the Hilton one night when Davis OD’ed and EMT's had to come to his room to help him out. The next day, Autry was charged with prostitution, possession of cocaine, heroin and drug paraphernalia. Davis was later charged with possession of heroin and cocaine.
Autry's relative said she has hired an attorney and is scheduled to start a rehabilitation program soon. As for Davis, a superior court judge issued an order that says he "currently suffers from a disabling condition that has left him unavailable to his clients." His office is locked up and his clients were passed on to another attorney.
We wanted to talk with Davis about what's going on, but we've been unable to track him down.
