    WA - Former teacher charged in kidnapping of 10yo boy

    Former teacher charged in kidnapping of 10-year-old boy

    A woman who worked for a Tacoma school has been charged with kidnapping in a case involving a 10-year-old boy.

    Tacoma police said Monday that the boy was the woman's former student at McKinley Elementary School.

    Jennifer Leigh Rice, 31, was charged Monday afternoon on one count of kidnapping in first degree with sexual motivation. Deputy prosecutor Mary Robnett said additional charges may be filed as the investigation continues.

    Tacoma School District spokeswoman Leanna Albrecht said that the woman was hired as a classroom teacher Oct. 8, 2006.

    She worked at McKinley Elementary School until April 20 when she was placed on paid leave while district administrators investigated complaints that Rice was socializing with students outside class, Albrecht said.

    I'm so glad in a way mine are done with school. Teachers are being in the news more and more for inappropriate behavior with children. It's really disgusting.

    Previous school trouble shown

    Within six months, Rice, then 23, was placed on administrative leave from her job at Spanaway Lake High School after being accused of attending a party where students were drinking alcohol and smoking pot; giving students rides in her car despite being warned not to; and making “verbal advances toward (a) male student,” according to her personnel file.

    Nine years and two teaching jobs later, Rice, now 31, is charged with the sexually motivated kidnapping of a 10-year-old boy she taught at Tacoma’s McKinley Elementary School.

    Rice was arraigned Monday on one count of first-degree kidnapping with sexual motivation. She wore an orange jail uniform and shackles in Pierce County Superior Court. She cried as she was led into court.

    Price has told detectives she had sex with the boy at a highway rest stop outside Ellensburg over the weekend and had sex with him four or five times before then, court papers state.
