Brianne Altice, the incarcerated former Utah English teacher acknowledged last week that losing sight of her “values” caused her to have sex with three of her students — one of whom was a 16-year-old boy she violated in the parking lot of a church.

However, her mea culpa wasn’t enough to persuade the Utah Board of Pardons and Parole, which on Tuesday determined that Brianne Altice will have to spend at least two more years behind bars, Fox13 reported.

The 37-year-old, an ex-teacher at David High School in Utah, was sentenced in 2015 to two to 30 years behind bars on three felony charges of forcible sex abuse. The board required her to attend a sex offender treatment program before her next appearance in April 2019.

The shameful teacher told authorities last week that her low self-esteem led her to seek out the company of her students.

“I lost sight of all my values and principles and was seeking inappropriate means to address my issues,” Altice stated during the parole hearing on January 24th. “Issues I’m very aware of now.”

Besides the 16-year-old, Altice also had relations with a 17-year-old at his house, and another 17-year-old whom she met while she was out on bail and facing criminal charges for the other two victims, according to Robert Yeates, the vice chairman of the Board of Pardons and Parole.
