Quick refresherA former Utah high school English teacher has been released from prison after spending the last four years behind bars for sexually abusing three students.
Utah Board of Pardons and Parole spokesman Dennis Moxon said Wednesday that 40-year-old Brianne Altice was released Tuesday as planned. Per terms of her parole, Altice has listed her new address in the state’s online sex offender registry.
Altice told the parole board earlier this year that she now has the confidence needed to never make the same mistakes again.
May these boys find peace.She is accused of having a sexual relationship with a 16-17-year-old boy who was one of her students in 2013. The teenage boy testified during a preliminary hearing on Wednesday. During part of the testimony, Altice, who was wearing a blue dress,cried and wiped tears from her face with tissues that created a pile in front of her on the table. The Standard-Examiner does not publish the name of victims of sex crimes. Judge John Morris also ordered the media not to release the name of the minor who testified.
Morris had spectators, except for the media, cleared from the court room during the teenager’s testimony. The teenager said he entered Davis High School at the beginning of second semester of2013 after moving to Utah from another state. Altice was the first teacher who was “sympathetic.”
“I was out of my comfort zone,” the boy said about moving to Utah.
He said he pushed the line by “flirting a lot,” with his teacher, but she would “laugh it off.” He also asked Alticeif shewould give him a kiss at the end of the year, but she would say, “no.”
He said he then started leaving notes in her desk and he would skip his other classes to go to Altice’s class.
“I wasn’t getting kicked out,” the boy said.
The boy said he kept flirting with Altice who did not discourage him.
“If I was 18 I know you would date me,” the boy testified he would tell her often. And then in February things started to change.
He also was having problems with his parents, the boy testified. He told Altice he was not sure he would pass a drug test, so Altice drove him to Walgreens to buy a drug test during her prep period.
“I ended up kissing her in the classroom,” the boy said. He had kept asking her and then they met more in a church parking lot which was close to the LDS Seminary by the school.
He met her usually before school. At first they just talked mostly, but then they started kissing more. The first time they had sex it was in the church parking lot before school started in March, the teenager said.Summer came and they still would meet. They had sex on his birthday, the teenager testified.
The teenager said he had stopped doing assignments but he still got A’s from his English class although he was failing his other classes. He said the following school year, he transferred to Viewmont High School because he “felt guilty.” He testified Altice texted him to see how he was doing.
The teenager said Altice told him she and her husband did not get along
