The former English teacher Brianne Altice (36) was last summer sentenced to between two and 30 years in prison for sexual intercourse with three of her students.
The students were between 16 and 17 years old when the abuse took place in 2013, and Altice admitted to the charges.
Now the parents of one of the boys have sued Altice and the school where she worked, and for the occasion, the former teacher has submitted a letter to the court in which she argues for her case.
According to a number of US media, including CBS, she writes that she never meant to do any harm, and that she encouraged the boy in question to continue his schooling.
- In advance of the 2012-2013 school year he (the victim) had problems with behavior at school. He got poor grades and was suspended. During this year (the year in which she was his English teacher), both grades and his behavior improved, she writes.
The reason for the new lawsuit against the school, is that the boy's parents believe it was "known" among students that Altice had sex with several of her students. They think the school should have done a better effort to determine if there was truth in these rumors.
Altice denies that the school ever contacted her about this.
She writes that the boy approached her for advise about how to handle a difficult situation with his parents.
Altice also writes that she can not afford a private lawyer.
