A former Davis High School English teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with a then-16-year-old student was ordered to stand trial on rape charges Wednesday.

Brianne Land Altice, 34, is charged in 2nd District Court with three counts of first-degree felony rape. One count of first-degree felony forcible sodomy was added to her charges after a preliminary hearing on Wednesday.

After hearing testimony from the alleged victim and a law enforcement officer, 2nd District Judge Thomas Kay ruled Wednesday there was probable cause that the teacher committed the crimes, and bound her over for trial.

An arraignment hearing for Altice was set for Feb. 27.

According to court documents, Altice is accused of having sexual intercourse with a male student, now 17, on several occasions between January and September of 2013.

Prosecutors say the teacher acknowledged to investigators that she had engaged in sex with the boy on two occasions.

An earlier probable cause statement, filed with the Davis County jail after Altice was arrested at her South Weber home in late October, alleged that one of the trysts occurred in a Kaysville park.

She has been free on $10,000 bail since her arrest. She was on paid leave until she fired Feb. 3, school district officials said Thursday.

Altice, whose husband filed for divorce and custody of their child in December, was hired by the Davis County School District in 2004; she had been teaching at the high school since August 2012.
