Davis on Wednesday admitted to defrauding state grant programs of more than $1 million from 2005 to 2009.

The money from various state departments was to be used for health care advocacy-related and nursing student assistance programs. Instead it was converted to Davis' personal use.

The plea agreement calls for Davis to serve no more than 41 months in prison. U.S. District Judge Sue E. Myerscough scheduled sentencing for July 22.
