Teacher Faces 25 Years After Admitting Molestation

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — A former teacher is facing a 25-year prison sentence after admitting to a decades-long pattern of molesting teenage boys in the United States and Japan. 

Kevin Ricks, 50, of Federalsburg, Md., had already received a one-year prison sentence in a Virginia court for taking indecent liberties with a minor while teaching at Osbourn High School in Manassas. But his guilty plea Thursday in federal court to child pornography charges exposes him to a much greater prison term. 

As part of a plea bargain, both prosecutors and the defense will recommend a 25-year sentence. 

Ricks admitted a pattern of assaults that began when he was a 19-year-old camp counselor. Molestations continued while teaching English in Japan and at teaching stints in Danville and Manassas.
