Jury Holds Fate of Laguna Niguel Hockey Mom

Closing arguments were Tuesday for the Laguna Niguel woman known as the ‘Hockey Mom,’ who is accused of having sex with teen hockey players.

The fate of Kathia Maria Davis lies in the jury’s hands, according to District Attorney Jennifer Warner.

Closing arguments were Tuesday for the Laguna Niguel resident known as the ‘Hockey Mom’ who is accused of having sex with teens.

As of late Wednesday, the jury is still in deliberation, Walker said.

Davis, a divorced mother of three, faces four felony counts of lewd acts on a child younger than 14 and four of unlawful sexual intercourse with the second boy, three misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, plus a sentencing enhancement allegation of substantial sexual conduct with a child.

The defense in Kathia Davis’ sexual assault case asserts she rebuffed the advances of a 13-year-old who came on to her and believed the other boy was 18 when they had consensual sex after he pursued her.

Walker told jurors that Davis used her position of trust among other parents, provided the freedom to young boys at her "party house" to drink and engaged in sex acts with two of her son's teammates, a prosecutor told jurors Tuesday.

"This is not the strict mom," Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Walker said in her closing argument, according to The Orange Coiunty Register. "She's the party mom.”

Earlier in the week now 19, was questioned by the defense and said she was a "strict" parent who never encouraged underage drinking that happened behind her back.

She faces a maximum sentence of 17 years and eight months in state prison if convicted.
