Several people were recently indicted by a Columbia County Grand Jury.

Christopher Joseph San Miguel, 27, of Evans, was indicted on a charge of vehicular homicide in connection to a March 2 wreck that killed Alaina Kensinger, 28, of Martinez, according to court documents released Friday.

Kensinger was a passenger in San Miguel’s vehicle at about 4:30 a.m. when he is believed to have fallen asleep. The vehicle drifted off the road, turned sideways, hit a guardrail, then a metal sign pole. San Miguel’s blood alcohol concentration was .165 at the time.

San Miguel was arrested March 28 and was released from the Columbia County Detention Center the same day after posting a $13,400 bond, according to jail records.

The Grand Jury also indicted former 4-H worker Jennifer Gayle Davenport, 26, who is accused of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl.

Davenport was indicted on aggravated sexual battery and aggravated child molestation.

She was arrested April 1 after the girl’s mother discovered Davenport had been in a sexual relationship with the teen. The teen told her mother she and Davenport had oral sex and shared sexually explicit text messages.

Davenport, who was a 4-H program assistant until three weeks before her arrest, was released from the jail April 6 after posting a $25,000 bond.

Two former Columbia County sheriff’s deputies also were indicted.

Former Staff Sgt. David Ronald Kitchens was charged with computer theft and violating the oath of the public officer. Kitchens was arrested March 5 after he was accused of soliciting business for personal injury attorneys and using sheriff’s office computers to print accident reports for private citizens and attorneys.

He was fired Feb. 25 and was released from the jail after posting a $10,000 bond, according to jail records.

Former sheriff’s office jailer Kester Henry Dozier was indicted on charges of violating the oath of a public officer and crossing guard lines with prohibited items.

He arrested Feb. 19 for delivering prohibited items including food, books and cell phones to inmates in the jail.
