WOMAN CONVICTED OF SEXUALLY ASSAULTING TEEN RELATIVE’S 14-YEAR-OLD HOCKEY FRIEND
SANTA ANA – A woman was convicted today of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy who played on the hockey team of her teenage relative. The defendant was previously convicted in this case of also sexually assaulting a 16-year-old boy. Kathia Maria Davis, 46, Laguna Niguel, pleaded guilty today to four felony counts of lewd acts on a child for John Doe #1. The defendant was previously found guilty by a jury Aug. 9, 2012, of four felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse for John Doe #2, and two misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor for John Doe #2 and Jane Doe #1. That jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict regarding the sex crimes against John Doe #1. Davis faces a maximum sentence of seven years and eight months in state prison and lifetime sex offender registration at her sentencing July 30, 2013, at 8:30 a.m. in Department C-29, Central Justice Center, Santa Ana.
Davis met 14-year-old John Doe #1 and 16-year-old John Doe #2 through her male relative’s hockey team.
On one occasion between April 2006 and April 2008, the defendant let her relative and John Doe #1 drink alcohol in her home during a sleepover. After two of the defendant’s teen relatives fell asleep on the floor, Davis sexually assaulted the victim by kissing and masturbating him in the same room.
On four occasions between July 2010 and July 2011, the defendant had unlawful sexual intercourse with John Doe #2 at her home in her bedroom. Davis also gave John Doe #2 alcohol. On one other occasion, Davis encouraged John Doe #2 and a teen girl to drink alcohol during a party in her home.
John Doe #2 told his mother about the unlawful sexual contact and alcohol consumption with Davis, and the Orange County Sheriff’s Department was subsequently contacted and investigated this case.
Davis’ lifetime sex offender registration will bar her from entering County recreational areas and City parks which have passed the Sex Offender Ordinance.
