KAYSVILLE -- A Davis High School teacher was arrested for having a sexual relationship with a student.
An investigation by Kaysville City Police Department led to the arrest of Brianne Altice, 34, who was booked into Davis County Jail on Monday on suspicion of sexual activity with a minor, according to a release by the Kaysville PD.
The victim was 15 years old at the time the activity began, Kaysville Lt. Paul Thompson said. The victim provided police information which led to a search warrant of Altice's home in South Weber, according to the release.
No court hearing has been set, as of Tuesday afternoon, in 2nd District Court because the Davis County Attorney's Office is reviewing the case before filing formal charges.
Evidence collected from the home and an interview with Altice gave police probable cause to arrest her.
According to the probable cause statement, a 17-year-old student told police he had "sexual intercourse with the suspect at least seven times." He also described to police tattoos on Altice's body and described to police the layout of her home.
He told police that five of the incidents occurred at her home and two incidents happened in Kaysville, according to the document.
When police questioned Altice she admitted, post Miranda Rights, "to having sexual intercourse with the 17-year-old victim on two occasions. Once at her residence and once at a park in Kaysville," according to the document.
She was booked in the jail on two counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor. According to the document, the aggravating factor with the charges is Altice "holds a special position of trust over the victim, i.e., teacher." She posted a $10,000 bondable bail on Tuesday and was released.
Davis County School District spokesperson Christopher Williams said Altice was put on administrative leave as soon as they heard of the arrest.
Altice was hired by the District in 2004 and began working at Davis High School in August of 2012, Williams said.
This was around the same time the relationship began, Thompson said.
Altice began working with the school district as a prep time specialist at Wasatch Elementary, Williams said. She was then hired in 2005 to work at Sunset Junior High School as an English teacher before she went to Davis High School.
