Jennifer L. Rice faces more than 25 years in prison after being found guilty Monday of one count each of first-degree kidnapping with sexual motivation and first-degree child molesting, and two counts of third-degree child rape.

Both sides agreed to the facts in Pierce County (Wash.) Superior Court, and Judge D. Gary Steiner reviewed them and issued a ruling.

Prosecutors say the former McKinley Elementary School teacher abducted the 10-year-old student from his Tacoma home, drove more than 100 miles and had sex with him at a highway rest area in 2007. They say she also had sex with his 15-year-old brother that summer.
