Brianne Altice

DRAPER — Former Davis High School English teacher Brianne Altice will spend at least two more years in prison for having sexual relationships with three male students, the Utah Board of Pardons and Parole has decided.

An order signed Monday by Angela Miklos, board chair, set Altice’s next parole hearing for April 2019. The board told staff to prepare a sex offender treatment report to be completed by one month before the next hearing.

Altice pleaded guilty to three counts of forcible sexual abuse, all second-degree felonies, in April 2015. In July 2015, Judge Thomas L. Kay sentenced Altice to three prison terms of 1 to 15 years. She is housed at the Utah State Prison in Draper.

In her first parole hearing on Jan. 24 this year, Altice took responsibility for the relationships.

“I want to make this very, very clear,” she said. “This was my doing. This was no one else’s fault. This was not my ex-husband’s fault. This was not the school’s fault. This was not my students’ fault.‘

Altice, 37, of South Weber. said she was “extremely remorseful. I took advantage of (the students’) care and concern. I hope they can get the help they need to live full and productive lives.”

Altice, the Davis School District and several district officials are defendants in two federal civil rights lawsuits filed on behalf of two of the teenagers, one of whom is now an adult.

"Looks" to me like she's aged 10 years after 2 years in prison after watching this video. Doesn't look quite so hot now, does she? You gotta love her crocodile tears--real convincing to dipsticks like WesDallas and Mack Foss, I'm sure!


Still think the boys should have been charged and jailed as well. Regardless of "the law", they aren't victims. They probably enjoyed everything they got.


BGL I understand what you are saying BUT you I do not think understand these boys were essentially hunting her down. She did refuse but they kept going and going. The boys even admitted to it and bragged about it from what I understand.


Yes it is.


Oh, come on! That is not a good reason to let her slide.


Apparently the State Board of Pardons and Parole doesn't agree with you, so go pound sand. At least it will give you something constructive to do in your spare time.


Did they take her looks into account? I can see the board denying parole for the fat teachers in Bountiful but Altice has some better attributes.


No, not crying. My chances were nill anyway. I'm two time zones away and my girlfriend won't let me bring anyone else into our relationship. I'm merely a champion for those wrongfully oppressed.


Free Brianne Altice!


I'm surprised the people who want to "free Brianne" haven't posted here. If the teacher were male people would be asking the state to make sure this teacher is never released. If a male teacher was well liked by young women (I had a sixth grade teacher who female classmates had a crush on) and one of these women pursued a relationship with this teacher and this teacher didn't exercise any restraint this young woman is still a victim even if she sought out this teacher. It is the responsibility of the teacher to exercise restraint and tell this student that they cannot have a relationship with them. I had a female teacher's aid who was 21 or 22 years old and to many of the guys in class, she was hot looking even though she was five or more years older than they are in some cases. If any of these guys were to approach her, she would have to tell them that she cannot have such a relationship with them just as much as if this teacher's aid was a guy being pursued by a female student.


well shucks. there goes my date for the weekend :(


Glad to see that the Utah Board of Pardons & Parole didn't buy Altice's "I had low self esteem" BS. Poor LesPhallus will probably cry himself to sleep tonight knowing that his hero won't have another chance at being freed until 2019!
