ARLINGTON A suburban North Texas high school teacher has been accused of having sex with five 18-year-old students at her home and was released on bond Monday.
Brittni Nicole Colleps, an English teacher at Kennedale High School, is charged with five counts of having an inappropriate relationship between a student and teacher a second-degree felony. It is a criminal offense for teachers to have sex with a primary or secondary school student, no matter the students age. A conviction carries a penalty of anywhere from two years to 20 years in prison per count.
The Arlington woman was booked into the city jail after turning herself in Monday morning and posted a $125,000 bond for her release that afternoon, police spokeswoman Tiara Ellis Richard told The Associated Press.
A telephone message left at Colleps home was not returned.
Authorities allege Colleps, 27, had sex with the students at her home over the past two months. Arlington authorities began investigating the allegations after hearing about them from school staff and Kennedale police on May 11.
During the investigation, Arlington detectives learned that Colleps and students had exchanged text messages that included sexually explicit pictures, Richard said. Students also told detectives of having sex at the teachers home.
Kennedale school Superintendent Gary Dugger told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that school officials learned about it Tuesday night and by Wednesday afternoon had gone to police.
Tarrant County records show Colleps has been married for seven years, the Star-Telegram reported.
Aside from being a first-year English teacher, Colleps coached the freshman girls basketball team.
She was placed on paid administrative leave until the end of the school year, said Mike Leasor, attorney for the Kennedale school system. Colleps had resigned her teaching contract in April, before the scandal came to light, Leasor said.
Kennedale is a town of about 7,300 residents near Arlington eight miles southeast of Fort Worth. The high school has about 3,200 students.
I also saw an article and vidoe from KDFW Fox in DFW. She had 5 students at home for one party.
Yes, guilty as charged!
Yes, guilty as charged!
Guilty or not guilty?
We need a professional opinion.
Laz —— Where are you?
The story doesn’t specify whether the students were boys or girls. I suspect it’s the latter.
I might have to consider crossing the street before experiencing that.
Y U C K ! ! !
In college I dated a girl that was on the women’s softball team. Half the girls on the team liked to munch on carpet. I was surprised that she didn’t feel uncomfortable in the showers with them (they had made passes at her) but she didn’t think anything of it. Proves two points to me, (1) women are definitely different than men and (2) the stereo type that women’s sports is populated by lesbians is true. Also, older lesbians like this target these girls and work at recruiting new “members”, same thing is going on in the girl scouts who long ago got rid of the “no homo” requirement for troop leaders.
My first thought as well.
After seeing “coach”, I’d bet the farm on it.
Is there anything more annoying than sloppy journalism?
She doesn’t look like an English teacher. She looks like a meth-head.
When I saw the picture the first thought I had was that it must have been a school for the blind.
Yeah, I had to have a talk with our daughter before her first summer camp as a Girl Scout. Hated to have to do that when she was only 12, but I thought it was necessary.
That’s why so much funding goes to public schools, Title IX, and the like.
Not sure why it is a “felony” to have sex with someone of age. While it is a breach of trust between teacher and studant, can someone explain why this if a felony?
Go to the linke to the Fox story from KDFW. It was 5 male students.
She is accused of having improper relationships with five male Kennedale High School students, who are all 18 years old or older. However, it is against the law for teachers to have sex with students, no matter what their ages.
Regardless of age, in Texas it is illegal for a teacher to have sex with a primary or secondary student.
