In the early 1970s, Davis was on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitive List and spent 18 months on trial and in jail before being acquitted of all charges. Prosecutors had alleged that she was involved in a California hostage-taking incident that led to the deaths of several people, including a judge.
