August 07, 2012

A Hagerstown man charged with molesting two children over a period of several years was sentenced to a year in jail after entering a plea agreement Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court.

Daniel Glenn Rice, 26, of 118 Ray St., pleaded guilty before Judge Donald E. Beachley to an amended charge of sexual solicitation of a minor. In exchange, the original charges he faced — two counts each of second- and third- degree sex offenses and child abuse by molestation or exploitation — were dismissed.

Beachley sentenced Rice to seven years in state prison, suspending all but one year to be served in the county detention center, court records said.

Rice had been charged with having inappropriate contact with a girl and a boy between 2002 and 2010, according to the application for statement of charges filed by Maryland State Police. The victims, who were preteens when the incidents occurred, were interviewed by investigators in March of this year, the document said.

The incidents occurred in the Boonsboro area, the charging document said.

Rice will be on probation for five years following his release from jail and must register as a sex offender for a period of 25 years, Assistant State’s Attorney Brett Wilson said.
