Montco Mom Gets No Leniency

A Montgomery County Mother convicted of injecting heroin into her 15 year old daughter had her bid for a lighter sentence denied by the court. Patricia Sue Davenport, 37, of Lower Salford, PA was sentenced in December to 5 to 10 years in prison for endangering the welfare of children and possession with intent to deliver heroin among other charges connected to incidents occurring over a six month period in 2014.

From the Daily News Times:

Patricia Sue Davenport…saw her bid for a reduced sentence denied by Montgomery County Judge William R. Carpenter, according to court documents available Monday. As a result, the five- to 10-year sentence Carpenter imposed against Davenport last month will remain intact.


In the one-page order, the judge did not elaborate on his reasons for denying Davenport’s request. Davenport, who claimed the sentence was excessive, can still appeal the judge’s ruling to the Pennsylvania Superior Court at which time the judge would have to put his reasons for the denial in writing.

Davenport can still appeal to Pennsylvania Superior Court.
