Former Utah teacher faces another rape charge as prosecutors find third victim
Brianne Land Altice, 35, is now charged with five counts of rape after a third victim described sexual encounters with the former teacher at Davis High School. She is already accused of raping two other young students in 2013.
Another teen has spoken out against an ex-Utah teacher accused of raping students at Davis High School.
Prosecutors discovered a third victim of Brianne Land Altice, the 35-year-old English teacher who allegedly seduced a 16 and 17-year-old boy for several months in 2013, landing her a fifth count of rape, according to the desert News.
Altice’s trial, initially set for September, had already been delayed due to a second victim who surfaced.
She was arrested by Layton police in October 2013 after a friend of the first victim reported his alleged sexual exploits that spanned half a year with Altice to authorities.
The victim claimed to have flirted with Altice while volunteering as a teacher’s assistant until she gave into sex, but he later felt guilty. Their encounters included the teacher’s home, a park and a church parking lot.
Her time with the 16-year-old victim overlapped encounters with a second victim that lasted from April to June 2013.
The third victim believes the rapes happened in either August or September, according to the Standard-Examiner.
Altice’s charges now include five counts of rape, two counts of forcible sodomy and three counts of forcible sexual abuse. Her next hearing for the latest charges is scheduled for Jan. 15.
