SANTA ANA (CBSLA.com) — A woman accused of sexually molesting her son’s 13-year-old friend in her Laguna Niguel home pleaded guilty Thursday.
Kathia Maria Davis, 46, agreed to a plea bargain sentencing her to 16 months in prison.
Davis was charged with four counts of lewd acts with a minor for allegedly molesting a boy on her son’s hockey team in 2005.
The suspect was convicted Aug. 9, 2012 of sexually assaulting another friend of her son’s, who was 16 at the time. She has served 16 months behind bars for that conviction.
Orange County Superior Court Judge W. Michael Hayes declared two mistrials after jurors deadlocked 10-2 in favor of her guilt for a second time in March.
As part of her plea agreement, Davis dropped any appeals and agreed to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life. She could have faced a maximum of five years behind bars if she was convicted on the charges.
The two jurors who favored acquittal in March said they didn’t believe the boy’s testimony was credible.
According to testimonies, Davis had given the 13-year-old and her son alcohol after she caught them sneaking some. She then allegedly began massaging and kissing the victim before molesting him on the couch while her son and daughter were sleeping on another couch in the room. The victim said Davis also tried to perform oral sex on him, but he said he felt ashamed and rejected her. The boy said he then told an older sister about the incident who told their mom. The mother confronted the suspect at the hockey rink, eliciting an apology from Davis, according to officials.
Davis denied any sexual contact with the victim when she was interviewed by detectives.
The boy came forward after seeing news reports about Davis and the 16-year-old boy she was charged with having sexual relations with during the summer of 2010 and 2011. In that case, she was convicted of four felony counts of unlawful sexual intercourse and two misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
A sentencing hearing is scheduled for July 30.
