SANTA ANA – A woman was sentenced today to 16 months in state prison for sexually assaulting two boys, ages 14 and 16 years old, who played on the hockey team of her teenage relative. Kathia Maria Davis, 46, Laguna Niguel, pleaded guilty June 27, 2013, 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. In addition to her prison sentence, the defendant is subject to lifetime sex offender registration.


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. 


At the sentencing today, the People read a victim impact statement to the court written by one of the victims, which said in part, “Holding all this in as a child forced me to grow up in ways I never wanted to. She took the things that I loved most and ripped them out of my life. I will never know what could have been.”


Davis’ lifetime sex offender registration bars her from entering County recreational areas and City parks which have passed the Sex Offender Ordinance.

Senior Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Walker of the Sexual Assault Unit prosecuted this case.
