PHILADELPHIA – Stanley Davis, 50, of Philadelphia pleaded guilty today to one count of distribution of controlled substances.

During the offense conduct, Davis was a Philadelphia Police Officer assigned to work as a task force officer with the Federal Bureau of Investigation working on narcotics investigations. In September or October of 2016, Davis was working in the Kensington section of Philadelphia, an area where illegal drugs were frequently bought and sold. Davis spotted two young women who were in Kensington attempting to buy drugs. Davis approached the women, ostensibly to gain information on drug trafficking activity in the area. Davis exchanged phone numbers with the women and began sending them text messages. The text messages soon turned sexual in nature. Davis entered into a sexual relationship with the first woman and later entered into a sexual relationship with the second woman. During the course of these relationships, Davis provided each woman with controlled substances, including heroin and crack.

Davis is scheduled to be sentenced on December 8, 2017 before the Honorable R. Barclay Surrick in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of the Inspector General with assistance from the Pennsylvania State Police and the Philadelphia Police Department. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Robert J. Livermore.
