Judge Bans CIA Contractor From Having Firearms In Colo.

Raymond Davis Can Travel To DC Area For Work, Judge Rules

A CIA contractor who was arrested over the weekend for allegedly fighting with a man over a parking space has been banned from possessing firearms in Colorado.

Raymond Davis, 37, appeared in a Douglas County courtroom on Tuesday where he learned he was charged with felony second-degree assault; disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor; and crime of violence, a sentence-enhancer count.

Davis, who is a 5 feet 9 inches tall and 235 pounds, appeared in court with his attorney.

The alleged victim and his wife, Jeff and Jacqueline Maes, were also in court. They did not speak during the proceeding.

At issue during the hour-long hearing was whether Davis could travel to the Washington D.C. area to continue his work for the federal government and whether he could use and possess a firearm.

Judge Susannna Meissner-Cutler ruled that Davis, under terms of his release, will be allowed to travel to the D.C. area and will be allowed to possess a firearm in connection with his work -- but only outside of the state.

He was banned from possessing weapons in Colorado, Meissner-Cutler ruled.

His bond was increased to $10,000. He did not make a plea in the case.

His next court appearance is Dec.15 at 1:30 p.m.

A conviction for second-degree assault, with a crime of violence designation, carries a mandatory minimum sentence of five years and a maximum sentence of 16 years in the Department of Corrections, with an additional mandatory parole period of three years.

Disorderly conduct carries a maximum sentence of up to six months in county jail.

The Saturday morning fight took place outside an Einstein Bros. Bagel shop in Highlands Ranch Town Center.

"He literally parked his car behind me and started shouting at me and I says, 'You need to relax.' And he got out of the car," the victim, Jeff Maes, told 7NEWS in an exclusive interview.

Davis was jailed in a Pakistani prison on Jan. 27, after he shot and killed two Pakistani men as he sat in his car.

Davis said he shot the two men in self-defense as they tried to rob him in late January. He claimed the two men attacked him as he drove through a busy Lahore neighborhood.

He was charged with two counts of murder in March and then released after the families of the two Pakistanis he killed pardoned him in exchange for $2.3 million in compensation or "blood money."
