By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Sep 2, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The substitute teacher who had a sexual relationship with a teenage boy will soon learn her fate.

Tanikka Queen is set to be sentenced on Sept. 11. She was found guilty of kidnapping, statutory sexual conduct and luring a child.

Officials said there were 2,400 text messages from Queen's cellphone and more than 100 phone calls and photos exchanged with the victim.

Queen was a substitute at Hyde Park Middle School when she started the relationship with a 15-year- old student.

The 22-year-old could receive as much as a life sentence.
