SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – July 27, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) – Former Utah high school teacher Brianne Altice, who pleaded guilty to having sexual relations with three of her students, has had an original hearing in front of a parole board officer scheduled for January 2017.
Utah Board of Pardons spokesman Greg Johnson said Monday that the board sets hearing dates with a tentative month and year. Approximately 90 days before the tentative hearing the board assigns the actual day, time and location for the hearing.
After that hearing, the board will decide either a release date for Altice, or they could schedule a re-hearing.
Earlier this month, Altice was sentenced to two one to 15 year terms to run consecutively, and a third one to 15 year term to run concurrently. Altice, 36, will get credit for time served.
She is accused of having sex with three teenagers, one aged 16 and two aged 17, who were students at Davis High School.
Altice pleaded guilty to three counts of forcible sexual abuse in April in return for prosecutors dropping 11 other charges.
She sent a letter to Judge Thomas Kay asking for a more lenient sentence, saying she is harmless. She also promised the crimes would not happen again.
Altice was first arrested in October 2013 after a student reported having a relationship with her. The two other victims later came forward with allegations that were similar. She was out on bail until a judge then ordered her to jail earlier this year after it emerged that one of the sexual relationships continued after she was first arrested two years ago, prosecutors said.
