Dave "Davey" Hilton, Jr. (born December 9, 1963) is a former boxing world champion. He is a member of the Fighting Hilton Family and is the former brother-in-law of Arturo Gatti. He held the WBC super middleweight title briefly after defeating Dingaan Thobela in December 2000, but shortly thereafter, the WBC stripped it from him after child molestation charges were leveled against him.
Hilton was found guilty in 2001 of sexually abusing his daughters, Jeannie, born in 1981, and Anne Marie, born in 1983, between 1995 and 1998, and was sentenced to seven years in jail in a facility 110 kilometers northwest of Montreal. In May 2006, Hilton was granted parole and was freed on June 20. He made his return to the boxing ring in May 2007 and won a unanimous decision. Hilton's daughters have written a book, Le Coeur au beurre noir (The Heart with a Black Eye), describing their abuse in detail. In September 2004, a Quebec judge lifted a publication ban on the identities of the daughters so they could publish the book. An English translation is in progress.
On August 20, 2007, Hilton was arrested by police and returned to jail for breaching conditions of his release. It was reported that Hilton assaulted his wife and made threats. He was acquitted on the charges of assault and death threats but remained detained pending the decision of Commission nationale des liberations conditionnelles due to his conditional release violations.
Dave Hilton was again arrested on September 28, 2010, and charged with threats and assault, along with his brother, Jimmy Hilton.
Hilton remarried in September 2012, and had another daughter in March 2013.
