Texas teacher convicted after sex with 5 students
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A former Texas high school teacher was convicted on Friday after having sex with five 18-year-old students at her home.
It took the jury less than an hour to conclude that Brittni Nicole Colleps, 28, of Arlington, was guilty of 16 counts of having an inappropriate relationship between a student and teacher. The second-degree felony is punishable by two to 20 years in prison per count.
Sentencing was scheduled for Friday afternoon.
The former Kennedale High School English teacher had sex with the students at her home over two months in 2011, authorities said.
