ENID, Okla. — A fired Garfield County jailer charged with sexual battery and bringing contraband to inmates last year has been charged with squatting for returning to the jail after being banned.

Krystal Dawn Davidson, 32, was charged Thursday with misdemeanor squatting, a charge punishable by a fine of up to $500 and up to a year in county jail.

Online court records show Davidson was arrested on a warrant issued for her arrest and had posted a $500 bond. She is set for arraignment on the charge Jan. 31.

According to an affidavit filed in the case, on Oct. 15, 2012, Jail Administrator Dorothy Tabor instructed Davidson she no longer allowed was on Garfield County Detention Facility property.

Deputy Steve Ramsey was informed Oct. 23, 2012, Davidson had written an inmate, and the letter contained photographs of Davidson and the inmate taken inside the facility.

Davidson wrote in the letter she came to the jail to put money on the inmate’s account and hoped she didn’t get caught, according to the affidavit. Ramsey checked the account and saw $18 had been deposited into the inmate’s account Oct. 21, 2012, at 8:45 p.m. signed by “ILOVEYOU.” Ramsey also checked security footage and saw a person who appeared to be Davidson making the deposit.

Davidson was charged Oct. 12, 2012, with one count of second-degree rape, or in the alternative, a count of sexual battery, sexual battery and two counts of bringing contraband into a jail (cellphones and tobacco).

Second-degree rape is punishable by five to 15 years in prison.

Each count of sexual battery is punishable by up to five years in prison. A charge of bringing a cellphone into the jail, a felony, is punishable by up to two years in prison and/or a fine of up to $2,500.

The charge of bringing tobacco into a jail, a misdemeanor, is punishable by up to a year in jail and/or a fine of up to $500.

A Sept. 7 search of the jail led to the discovery of cellphones and contraband that led to an investigation, according to an affidavit filed in the case.

Investigators learned of inappropriate relationships between inmates and certain jailers, along with staff members bringing contraband into the facility.

Staci Nicole Guffey, 19, and Kevina Guadalupe Abercrombie, 29, also were charged following the investigation.

Two male supervisors were fired following the investigation.

Guffey and Abercrombie each are charged with a count of sexual battery and two counts of bringing contraband into a jail.

Davidson, who is free on $15,000 on her previous charges, is set for a March 26 preliminary hearing in that case.
