Officer sentenced to 18 months in drugs-for-sex case

April 9, 2018

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A retired Philadelphia narcotics officer who pleaded guilty to exchanging drugs for sex with two women has been sentenced to 18 months in federal prison.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that 50-year-old Stanley Davis spent much of Monday’s hour-long sentencing hearing with his head in his hands, occasionally wiping away tears.

Davis pleaded guilty last summer to one count of distribution of controlled substances. The 21-year police veteran apologized to the judge “and everybody I let down.”

Prosecutors said he approached the women in Kensington, a neighborhood hard-hit by the opioid epidemic, and eventually started giving them crack and heroin for sex in New Jersey motels and his police-assigned car.

One of the women was later accused of driving under the influence in a crash that killed her grandmother.
