A former beloved Yukon High School teacher faces a criminal charge in Canadian County District Court as new victims have emerged.
Robert “Rob” Brian Davis, 40, of Yukon, has been charged with two counts of sexual battery in connection with an assault on a teenager. He was arrested last week, suspended from Norman High School as an assistant principal and this week is no longer employed by the district.
An arrest warrant affidavit revealed that a teen victim told investigators Davis molested her when she was either 16 or 17 years old. She claimed Davis would “tickle her side” but would start “on her ribs and work his way up to the side of her breast,” the court record states.
The victim accused Davis of coming into her room one night when she said he pulled down her shorts and pulled up her shirt. He then “touched all over her body including her vagina,” court records show. She pretended to be asleep but texted him after the incident to tell him to leave her alone.
He told her “he knew he had a problem but promised this type of behavior would never happen again,” the record states. The teen claimed that Davis asked her not to tell anyone what happened.
Davis was charged Monday with sexual battery in connection with the teen’s allegations.
Davis’ bond was set at $25,000 and he bonded out last Thursday. If convicted, Davis faces up to 10 years in prison on both counts.
In a separate case, an adult woman claims Davis sexually assaulted her after drugging her iced tea at his Yukon home in May. Police responded the next morning at a Midwest City hospital where a rape exam revealed she had Zolpidem, a powerful sedative which she claims she does not use.
Davis has not been charged in that case.
The celebrated teacher was Yukon’s Teacher of the Year (TOY) for the 2016/2017 school year and a finalist for the state Teacher of the Year honor.
“It’s an honor really,” he said, having been quoted in the school’s yearbook regarding his TOY award. “I love my job, and I love coming to work every day. These kids are the reason I do it.”
