50-year-old Kevin Garfield Ricks was a teacher at Osbourn High School in Manassas, Virginia. He was arrested for and pleaded guilty to molesting a 16-year-old student from the school. Age of consent in Virginia is 18.
It turns out that Ricks has left a trail of victims all over the world for the past 30 years. Not only did Ricks keep a journal of his ‘conquests’ he also kept mementos of his various victims which included sex toys, soiled tissues and hair trimmings. Ick.
He also had a trove of homemade child porn.
In the most recent case that finally got him arrested, which seems to be his MO, he supplied a 16-year-old male student of the school with copious amounts of tequila before molesting the child. How he got caught was that Ricks posted a message on his victim’s Facebook that said “You told me our experience was your first with a guy.” The message was seen by another student who notified police.
The sad part is that he’s only looking at up to 5 years in prison.
Federal law enforcement are still investigating this scumbag so hopefully more charges will be forthcoming.
