Author: District Attorney's Office
Date: 6/29/2018 2:20:41 PM

After review of a case involving allegations of annoying or molesting a child under 18, the District Attorney’s Office has determined there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Jonathan Oscar Davis (DOB 02/02/1975) for conduct in the City of San Luis Obispo occurring on June 25, 2018 at Sephora on Court Street.

The San Luis Obispo Police Department referred the case to the District Attorney’s Office for review of the evidence and to make a decision on whether charges can be filed.  On Thursday, June 28th the District Attorney’s Office filed felony charges against Jonathan Oscar Davis (DOB 02/02/1975) for annoying or molesting a child under 18 after having been convicted of a prior sex crime.  This is a violation of Penal Code section 647.6(c)(2).  It is also alleged that Jonathan Oscar Davis was previously convicted of felony child molestation in two prior cases in 2006, and of first-degree burglary, a violent felony, in a third prior case from 2001.


This morning, June 29, Mr. Davis appeared for his arraignment in Department 1 of the Superior Court of the County of San Luis Obispo..  At the arraignment, Defense Counsel declared a doubt as to Mr. Davis’ competency to stand trial and the Court referred the matter for a doctor’s evaluation.  At the next court date, July 19, 2018, the Court will address this issue in Department 1 of the Superior Court, the Honorable Judge Jacquelyn Duffy presiding.
