On the third day of an explosive Texas student-teacher sex trial, a former high-school student said the oral sex he got from Brittni Colleps made him “happy” to be at her family’s home.
Colleps is accused of having group sex with four students while a fifth videotaped the scene.
“Richard,” a pseudonym, testified that he doesn’t think of himself as a victim of the 28-year-old mother of three and wife of 11 years. The young man said he and three friends went to the teacher’s home where, while having sex with other students, she performed oral sex on him twice, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
The court heard additional testimony from students about the former teacher’s sexual behavior.
“Jordan,” another witness, testified anonymously that he was “amazed” when he first heard that Colleps was engaging in sexual relationships with students.
He later went to her house with two friends, he told the court, and they all had sex with her. He also stated that he and the other students involved attempted to cover up their liaisons with the teacher to ensure she would not be punished, according to the Star.
Another student stated that he does not believe Colleps committed a crime, ABC reported.
Thursday’s grippingly graphic testimony raised more issues with the prosecution of the case as it made it quite clear that the young men, all over age 18, were willing participants.
That said, Colleps is not facing rape charges, but rather a charge of “having improper relations with students.” This is an unusual and new charge, according to ABC news.
The prosecution rested its case at the end of the morning session. In the afternoon, in session with no jury, however, the defense attorney Lex Johnston did question Colleps.
It was at this point that her emotions overcame her and she began to cry. She stressed that the whole idea of a trial was something she never desired, and that she also didn’t want her former students to be forced to testify, according to the Star.
“She is terrified, she has no idea if she is going to be in prison next week or at home,” Johnston told ABC.
