English teacher Brianne Altice, 34, is facing charges that she had sex with a 15 year old student at a respected Utah school.
Altice was arrested at her home on suspicion two felony counts of unlawful sex with a minor. According to the local Desert News, the student ‘tipped off’ Kaysville police and went on to describe the layout of the teachers home and the tattoos on her body.
The Davis High School pupil is now 17 but was apparently 15 at the time.
Shocked students have told local news station KUTV that the teacher ‘wanted to be liked’. Kylee Carroll, a student at Davis High School, said “She always wanted to be liked…I just didn’t think that she would ever do something like this.”
Five of the teacher-pupil liaisons took place at Altice’s South Weber house, and two more elsewhere in Kaysville, including at least one at a public park, the police report states.
A spokesperson for the local school district Chris Williams stated that the schools reputation was at stake.
“This high school is a great high school. It has a fantastic reputation across the state,” Williams told KUTV. “So I’m sure today there are some teachers out there wondering, ‘What does this do for the reputation?'”
The teacher is on paid administrative leave. She was released from Davis County Jail on $10,000 bail.
