District Man Sentenced to 12 Months and One Day in Prison for Felony Second-Degree Theft for Stealing Multiple Packages after Multiple Prior Theft Convictions

Dayvon Baker, 34, of Washington, D.C., was sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison to be followed by three years of supervised release for one count of felony second-degree theft.

On February 9, 2024, Baker pleaded guilty to one count of felony second-degree theft. At today’s sentencing, Superior Court Judge Lynn Leibovitz sentenced Baker to 12 months and one day in prison.

On November 17, 2023, the defendant went up to residences in Northwest Washington, D.C. and stole packages that been delivered to residents’ front doors. Baker was indicted on December 20, 2023, on three counts of felony second degree theft. Baker had multiple prior theft convictions, not from the same occasion, and was therefore subject to enhanced penalties for his alleged theft, including a mandatory minimum sentence of one year in prison.

In announcing the sentence, U.S. Attorney Graves and Chief Smith commended the work of those investigating the case from the Metropolitan Police Department. They acknowledged the efforts of those who worked on the case from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, including Assistant U.S. Attorney Lauren Gaskin, who investigated and prosecuted the case.
