ADAMS COUNTY, Wash. -- An Othello teacher was sentenced to more than four years in prison for molesting one of her students.

Lisa Davis, a former Scootney Springs Elementary School teacher pleaded guilty to an attack on a ten-year-old.

KREM-TV reports the longtime teacher will only serve one year if she takes part in the sex offender sentencing alternative known as SOSA. This allows her to receive treatment and be evaluated for her risk to the public.

Davis offered a tearful apology to the fifth grade victim and his family Monday, but they were not in the courtroom.

Another media outlet the victim's family is suing the district for a million dollars.
