Devin Paige Davis
A former Muldrow teacher has indicated she will change her plea in a court case involving a minor.
Devin Paige Davis, 26, was charged Feb. 21, 2017, in Sequoyah County District Court in Sallisaw with soliciting sexual conduct or communication with a minor.
She was scheduled to go to trial on the charge last week but the trial was cancelled when it was announced that Davis planned to change her plea. Stacey Slaughter, assistant district attorney, said the trial was cancelled. The hearing for the plea hearing has been set for 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 26.
“We don’t know if the plea will be guilty or no contest,” Slaughter said. “We never know until we get in there.”
Davis resigned from her position as a chemistry teacher after allegations were made of her inappropriate behavior with a student. The allegations were first investigated by the school, then by the Muldrow Police Department.
According to the investigator’s report filed with the charges, Davis admitted that she shared intimate photos of herself with a 16-year-old male student via cell phone along with inappropriate chats and text messages.
The crime is punishable by up to 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $10,000, or both.
Davis is free on a $10,000 bond.
