A mother has been sentenced to 16 months in prison for sexually assaulting two boys who played on her son's hockey team.

Kathia Maria Davis, 46, from Orange County, California, will also have to register as a lifetime sex offender.

The court was told that Davis had sex with a 16-year-old boy on four occasions between July 2010 and 2011, and engaged in sex acts with a 14-year-old during a slumber party.

One of her victims wrote a statement which read: "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."

A jury found Davis guilty in August last year of four counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with the 16-year-old and two misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Prosecutors said that divorced mother-of-three gave the 16-year-old alcohol and, on one occasion, encouraged the boy and a teenage girl to drink alcohol during a party at her home.

"The suspect would have parties for members of the hockey team. This also involved some sleepovers," said Orange County Sheriff's Department spokesman Jim Amormino.

Davis was arrested at her home in September 2011 after the older boy told his mother about the abuse.

The jury in the first trial was unable to reach a unanimous verdict about the allegations of sex crimes against the younger boy.

However, at a trial last month, Davis pleaded guilty to four counts of a lewd act with the 14-year-old.
