Parole date set for Utah teacher who sexually abused three of her students

Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune Brianne Altice, 35, was taken into custody and ordered to stand trial in 2nd District Court after Judge John R. Morris refused to set bail, Thursday, January 15, 2015. Altice, is facing a total of 14 felony charges for allegedly having sexual relationships with three male students: five counts of first-degree felony rape, two counts of first-degree felony forcible sodomy, three counts of second-degree felony forcible sexual abuse, along with three counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor and one count of dealing harmful material to a minor, all third-degree felonies.

A former Davis High School teacher who sexually abused three of her students will be released from prison in September, after serving more than four years behind bars.

Brianne Altice was sent to prison in July 2015 to spend at least two years and up to 30 behind bars after she pleaded guilty to three charges of forcible sexual abuse.

She admitted in plea agreement documents that she touched the genitals of one 16-year-old and two 17-year-olds. The teens testified at preliminary hearings that they had sex with Altice, when she was a teacher.

Prison officials confirmed Tuesday that Altice will be released Sept. 10.

At her first parole hearing in 2017, Altice said he has been focusing on life-skills classes and therapy while in prison and has dug deep into self-esteem issues that led to her behavior.

She was denied parole after that first hearing, and was given a rehearing that was held earlier this month.
