Prince William: Update on Convicted Predator, Alledged Serial Predator, Kevin Ricks, former Teacher
Ricks was accused of molesting many young children. Last week he was sentenced to serve one year and the judge suspend four additional years of the sentence.
Kevin Ricks, the former Osbourn High School teacher who admitted sexually molesting a 16-year-old boy, was sentenced Thursday to one year in the Prince William County jail.
Prince William County Circuit Court Judge WIlliam D. Hamblen suspended four years of a five-year sentence
Ricks faces federal child pornography charges in Virginia as well as a local sex abuse charge in North Carolina.
FBI agents and local police have linked Ricks, 50, to a series of sex abuses that goes back more than 30 years, with alleged encounters with boys in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, several western states and Japan.
Federal and state prosecutors are lining up to file charges against Ricks, and law enforcement officials said they hope to put together prosecutions that would net decades of jail time.
