Kathia Davis Allowed Teens to Party at Her House So She Could Have Sex With Them

Kathia Maria Davis, 45-year-old Orange County woman has been found guilty of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old boy. The jury 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.
