Robert Davidson, son of State Representative Margo Davidson, was sentenced following his two arrests that shocked constituents during his mother’s campaign in early November.

Davidson was charged with numerous counts of possession with intent to deliver after police in Upper Darby witnessed a drug buy and made chase just minutes from his mother’s office. While incarcerated, Davidson made an extremely incriminating phone call to an unknown person, asking for them to go and clean out the apartment.

Unfortunately for Davidson, Upper Darby Police obtained a search warrant for the location as all phone calls made from George W. Hill Correctional Facility are subject to monitoring and recording. After serving the warrant, police came across what they called a drug “warehouse,” according to Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood. Davidson received additional charges following the search of his apartment. Upper Darby Police confiscated 301 bags of heroin, 16 bags of cocaine, 18 vials of marijuana and, two vials of methamphetamine, more than $5,000 cash and a gun reported stolen from Springfield.

It’s a warehouse, look at it. They [these] guys are major dealers. They were selling everything, heroin, cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine. – Superintendent Michael Chitwood

Despite the overwhelming evidence from his two arrests, Davidson got a slap on the wrist with a mere 6-23 months on a negotiated guilty plea with the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office. Additionally, Davidson will serve a few years on probation to run concurrent to his rather light jail term.

Interestingly enough, another man in Delaware County received nearly double the sentence as Davidson for a lesser offense in 2016. Furthermore, an Altoona man was sentenced to 37 to 74 years for operating a drug ring in a halfway house. His original sentence was 204 years.

Robert Davidson had a previous encounter with the legal system in Delaware County – after being arrested for possession of marijuana, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct in 2015. His slightly older brother was arrested in 2012 for felony criminal trespassing, two counts of indecent exposure, two counts of simple assault and four counts of harassment followed by three felonies of theft of a motor vehicle, theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property and two misdemeanor counts of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and resisting arrest. His mother, State Rep. Margo Davidson was also brought to court after a bizarre case regarding falsifying signatures on her nomination petitions in 2015 and being evicted from her campaign office due to unpaid rent. Additionally, the Davidson’s owed the City of Philadelphia nearly $20,000.00 in unpaid taxes, bills and fines.

Pennsylvania’s Attorney General Josh Shapiro has been working hard to crack down on the heroin crisis, starting with cracking down on drug traffickers.
