OC Woman Convicted Of Sexually Assaulting Teen Hockey Player
SANTA ANA (CBSLA.com) — A 45-year-old hockey mom, Kathia Maria Davis, was found guilty Thursday of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old member of her son’s hockey team between July 2010 and July 2011.
Davis was convicted of four felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse and two misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
The divorced mother of three was arrested at her home in September 2011 on suspicion of unlawful sex with a minor and lewd acts with a child, according to Orange County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jim Amormino.
Officials said the victim of the 16-year-old notified his mother about the alleged relationship and she contacted the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
Investigators say they then discovered a second 13-year-old victim, who Davis allegedly abused between April 2005 and April 2006.
“The acts occurred in her home in Laguna Niguel. She would throw parties; sometimes provide alcohol to the minors. In one of the cases, the act occurred on a sleepover,” Amormino said in July.
Davis claimed she thought the older boy was 18 or 19 years old at the time.
“Dennis is the older boy who at the time, was obviously either 16 or 17 years old. We’re conceding that those sexual relations did take place, but it’s what my clients understanding was at the time. It was consensual. She was pursued by Dennis over a long period of time. And at some point in time, my client gave into that, for whatever reason, she’ll have to explain that when she’s on the stand,” David Cohn, defense attorney for Davis told CBS2/KCAL9 reporter Michele Gile in July.
Cohn contends that the sex with the 13-year-old did not happen.
Jurors deadlocked on charges relating to the younger victim.
