Man who often plays Santa at schools arrested for lewd proposals to child

WARR ACRES, Okla. – A man who officials said often plays Santa at local schools has been arrested, accused of making lewd proposals to a child.
Authorities used Craigslist to net 49-year-old Wiley Gene Davis. The task force said Davis responded to an advertisement he believed a 15-year-old girl posted. According to the OSBI, Davis made sexual and lewd proposals and even referred to himself as “Santa.”
 
At his Warr Acres home, his wife told NewsChannel 4 she was shocked by the allegations.
 
“I would have never ever suspected him of doing anything like that. He always was like the guy who helped kids. I am just very sad and heartbroken,” Davis’ wife said.
She added that she was filing for divorce.
 
Last week Davis went to a convenience store near Coltrane and Waterloo to meet the teen. Undercover agents were waiting for him. When he got out of the car, agents said they noticed he was wearing a private investigator badge and had a loaded pistol.
 
They arrested him for lewd acts and proposals to a child under 16, violations of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act and possession of a firearm in the act of committing a felony.

Apparently this creep has been an active Santa in the Oklahoma City area. I think I may have talked to someone last season who had booked him in the past. I'm in Tulsa and Warr Acres (where this happened) is a suburb of OKC. Very sad. I hope the throw away the key.

What a sad, pathetic man.  It's no wonder people want Santa background checked these days with twisted kinks like him running around.

Sadly the background check would have showed him to be an upstanding member of society because he had not been caught yet. What a disgrace to the suit and name of Santa.

Well, at least he'll never don the suit again for any client that requires a background check. Any of us who have a "hints for hiring the right Santa" type of advice on our website should stress the importance of background checks to weed out repeat offenders, but also stress that it can do nothing to spot someone who's never been caught and that there is no substitute for parental vigilance any time any one is with their child!

The Lone Star Santas Charities, Inc. are fuming at this!  The Board of Directors (and I hate that we have a BOD, but its required for our 501©(3) status) is issuing a statement within its membership to insure them that this person is not nor ever has been a member.  LSS does not just have members in Texas.  We also accept members from the states that border Texas (kind of like the Wright Amendment before its alteration).  Currently, we have members from New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Louisiana that are also active in LSS and its charitable endeavors.

On three separate occasions I have attempted to comment on this thread.  Each time I start out with something about this man and his alleged crime and also that there is always at least one story like this each year..... I end up becoming so angry that I can not seem to complete my post....

 

I guess this will have to be attempted again.....

    • Every Once in A While
      Every once in a while I see some flagrant abuses of Santa’s appearance and etiquette. It strikes me some men don’t care about how they act or portray the beloved character of Santa.

      Gentlemen, you undertake an awesome responsibility when you button up your Santa Suit. Don’t take it lighty!

      The “World” has an image of Santa as represented by illustrations, traditions and personal contact. Believe it or not, you’re being measured by those who see you for your authenticity.

      You’re fooling yourself if you believe that no one notices or cares if your bead is yellow or unkempt. Maybe you’re also missing a few of those pearly whites, or they are stained from tobacco products. Again, don’t fool yourself….kids notice everything! I have a gold crown capping one of my lower teeth. Every once in a while, I have an inquisitive youngster question what that gold thing is in my mouth. Years ago I thought it was well hidden however; kids have uncanny radar to pick out any of our flaws….

      You may be asking yourself, “What difference does it make? “It’s not the Christmas Season.” Maybe it isn’t however, If you’re representing Santa, you’re representing one of the most recognizable characters in the world. What you do reflects upon me and every Santa reader of this article. If you’re going to be recognized then do justice to the character we are reenacting.

      Over the years I have been a Santa, I have frequently been by told by people about the Santa they hired or saw which left a very poor expression. Most of their comments were predictable. Their Santa did not interact with the children as expected or he was unprepared. He was unanimated, had a dirty suit or lack luster beard. Obviously these are sure fire ways never to be called to this group again.

      Think about what impression you make as a Santa and pay attention to developing your character. You can become one of the best Santas in your area by learning everything about your character and performing from the heart.

      Always remember: It's not about you. It's about the children.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      Is it time to start calling out Bad Santas?

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?
