Last week An Orange County jury found Kathia Maria Davis guilty of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old boy but could not reach a verdict on whether she did the same to a 13-year-old. Davis was found guilty of four felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse and two misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. She was acquitted of one misdemeanor count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and the jury hung on four counts alleging she performed lewd acts with a then-13-year-old boy.
Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Walker alleged Davis provided alcohol to members of her son’s hockey team and sexually assaulted at least two of them between 2005 and 2010. Authorities eventually were notified after the 16-year-old’s mother revealed to Davis’ ex-husband that her son admitted to having sexual liaisons with Davis.
Davis, who was taken into custody after the verdicts, could face up to five years in prison, Cohn said. However, she could also be placed on probation and might be able to serve her time in a county jail while avoiding a lifetime registration as a sex offender.
Davis’ home developed a reputation for being a “party house” where the hockey players could gain easy access to alcohol. The older boy, who was 16 at the time, had sex with the defendant in the summer of 2010, according to the prosecutor. Indignant parents confronted Davis at some point about the parties at her home and she promised to dial it down. Last summer, the boy and Davis had sex again on a couple more occasions and the boy eventually told his mother.
When confronted by investigators, Davis denied having sex with the older boy, but then later acknowledged it. Davis alleged the younger boy “came on to her and she rebuffed him”. According to Davis lawyer, his client consistently denied initiating any sexual contact with the younger boy. The boy and Davis’ son “got into alcohol” in the house and got drunk. As the two boys and Davis’ daughter were watching television and were dozing off, the 13-year-old tried to kiss Davis. “She shoved him away and said, `What the heck are you doing? This ain’t happening. You’ve had too much to drink,”‘ according to defence. Davis felt compelled to tell the boy’s mother what happened, but was “leery” because she was concerned that he had gotten drunk during a stay at her home. The defense attorney said even after the incident, the boy’s mother planned a trip to the Bahamas for her family and Davis’ family.
The defense attorney also denied his client supplied alcohol to the hockey players, saying the youths sneaked booze into the parties and would play “beer pong” in a garage while the adults were elsewhere in the house.
The older boy “became enamored of Kathia” and started sending his “crush” text messages saying he wanted to have sex with her and. Davis, who at at the time was going through a “tumultuous divorce ” eventually gave in to the boy, according to defence.
Davis faced a maximum sentence of 17 years and eight months in state prison if convicted on all charges.
Previous entry featuring Kathia Maria Davis -case (OCTOBER 7TH, 2011) :
Kathia Maria Davis, 44-year-old mother from Orange County, California, has been accused of engaging in sex with two boys who are youth hockey league teammates of her son. Authorities say there may be a third victim.
Davis, of Laguna Niguel, was arrested on Wednesday last week at her home on suspicion of having unlawful sex with a minor under 16 and committing lewd acts with a minor under 14, according to Orange County Sheriff’s spokesperson Jim Amormino. Both victims were members of the youth hockey team, the Beach City Lightning, which her son also played in. The teams played at hockey rinks in Anaheim and Laguna Niguel.
The investigation began last week after the first victim, who was under 16 at the time, came forward to his mother. According to the mother, Davis hosted parties at her home and served alcohol to underage team members
Davis, a divorced mother of three, is accused of engaging in unlawful sex with the victim, who is still under 18 years of age, for about a year and a half. “We received complaints that she was throwing parties for members of the hockey team and other friends of her son and providing them with alcohol,” Amormino said.
During the course of the investigation, the second victim, who is now over 18 years of age, was located. It is believed that Davis committed the lewd acts about six years ago.
Authorities are concerned there may be other potential victims given Davis’s access to the young hockey players.
