WOMAN CONVICTED OF SEXUALLY ASSAULTING TEEN RELATIVE’S 16-YEAR-OLD HOCKEY FRIEND
SANTA ANA – A woman was convicted today of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old boy who played on the hockey team of her teenage relative. Kathia Maria Davis, 45, Laguna Niguel, was found guilty by a jury 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. The defendant faces a maximum sentence of five years in state prison based on this conviction. The jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict on four felony counts of lewd acts on a child under 14 for John Doe #1, one misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor for John Doe #3, and a sentencing enhancement allegation for substantial sexual conduct with a child for John Doe #1. The People intend to re-try those charges. Davis is scheduled for the re-trial and sentencing Nov. 5, 2012, at 9:00 a.m. in Department C-29, Central Justice Center, Santa Ana.
Davis is accused of meeting 13-year-old John Doe #1 and 16-year-old John Doe #2 through her male relative’s hockey team.
On one occasion between April 30, 2005, and April 29, 2006, the defendant is accused of letting 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 of the room they were all in, Davis is accused of sexually assaulting the victim by kissing and masturbating him.
On four occasions between July 1, 2010, and July 31, 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 occasion, Davis encouraged John Doe #2 and a teen girl to drink alcohol during a party in her home. She is accused of encouraging her teen relative, John Doe #3, to drink at that same party.
John Doe #2 told his mother about the unlawful sexual contact and alcohol consumption with Davis, and the Orange County Sherriff’s Department was subsequently contacted, which led to their investigation into the sexual assaults.
