A former Davis High School English teacher accused of having sex with three male students pleaded not guilty during a Thursday to hearing.

Brianne Altice, 35, was crying when she entered the Farmington courtroom, according to the Standard-Examiner.

Altice is charged in 2nd District Court with a total of 14 felonies: five counts of first-degree felony rape, two counts of first-degree felony forcible sodomy, three counts of second-degree felony forcible sexual abuse, along with three counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor and one count of dealing harmful material to a minor, all third-degree felonies.

One of the teens testified last week at a preliminary hearing that they had sex at least three times after December 2013.

That was while Altice was free on bail in connection with charges related to the first two alleged victims.

Deputy Davis County Attorney Susan Hunt argued last week that Altice should be held without bail because of "her willingness to continue to commit felony sexual offenses while on bail ... "

Judge John Morris agreed and ordered a no-bail hold.

Altice appeared in court Thursday in a Davis County jail jumpsuit.

She faces up to life in prison if convicted as charged. She was fired from her teaching job last year.

Arguments on defense motions that will be filed later this month will be heard on Feb. 18.

No trial dates have been set.
