We can only imagine the agony he’s suffered.
A second victim of an imprisoned former Davis High School English teacher has filed a federal lawsuit against her, the school and officials over her sexual contact with underage students.
The lawsuit alleges school officials should have known that Brianne Altice had improper relationships with minors prior to Davis High School hiring her as a teacher and seeks unspecified monetary damages. School officials also failed to act when they and teachers knew or suspected Altice was acting inappropriately with male students, according to the complaint filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City.
Altice, 36, pleaded guilty to three counts of second-degree felony forcible sexual abuse in state court in July, admitting she touched the genitals of three boys in 2013. She was sentenced to at least two years and up to 30 years in prison.
Each of the three students testified that they had sex with the teacher.
One of the boys and his parents filed a federal lawsuit earlier this month, alleging she had sex with the boys in parking lots, parks and her home and that the relationships were known to students, staff and administrators.
The second lawsuit makes most of the same allegations but also says school officials “knew or should have known of Ms. Altice’s improper relationships with minor children prior to her being offered a teaching position at Davis High School.” It provides no details but also says that school and district administrators failed to step up and put a halt to Altice’s behavior.
As a result of the alleged failures to prevent or stop the abuse, the lawsuit says the student suffered mental and emotional injuries.
Good luck with that. Mental and emotion injuries, huh?
