Former Texas Teacher Brittni Nicole Colleps Gets 5 Years for Group Sex with 5 Adult Students

A former Texas high school teacher has been sentenced to five years in prison for having group sex with five of her adult students.

The Associated Press reports that Brittni Nicole Colleps, 28, was convicted Friday of having sex with the 18-year-old students at her Arlington home. Colleps was found guilty of 16 counts of having an inappropriate relationship between a student and teacher, a felony punishable by 2-20 years imprisonment for each count under Texas law, even if the students are legally consenting adults.

Colleps, who is married with three children, was an English teacher at Kennedale High School in Kennedale when she had the students over to her home and had group sex with them over a two-month period in 2011. She turned herself into authorities after cell phone video showing her and multiple students having sex emerged, a video which was shown during her trial.

Three of the men who had sex with Colleps testified that they were not victimized by their teacher and that they did not wish to see her punished for the consensual sex acts.

Two former students described how their relationship with Colleps began with text messages and escalated into sex. One 19-year-old testified how he went to the teacher’s home with a friend twice for group sex. Another 20-year-old admitted to recording the sex.

Her husband, Christopher Colleps, was serving in the military overseas at the time of the encounters. He said that although he was angry with his wife, he stands by her “because ’til death do us part means ’til death do us part.” Colleps said jailing his wife would punish him and the couple’s three children for something they had no control over.

Colleps admitted that he and his wife had shared sexual partners in the past.

    No victim, no crime. Two consenting people, nobody’s business but their own, regardless of age. You can not argue someone is incompetent to make decisions based upon age alone. That is age discrimination, and it has been criminally coded into the law. The fact is, people under 18 make decisions every day of their life… what clothes to wear, what shoes to buy, what they want to eat when they open the refrigerator, where they are going to go, if they are going to do their homework or not, whether they are going to fire a gun, etc. Once you pass the age of one to two, you express a will and make decisions.

    Neither you nor they nor I voted on any single law under which we live; representative democracy is not democracy, at all period. Lysander Spooner said it best. Its a Constitution of No Authority. You never voted on whether you were going to become a citizen or not. Its a
    non binding contract, of old men long since dead, and their contract died with them.

    Practice Jury Nullification, people. If you don’t know what it is, look it up on Wikipedia. I’ll give you the abbreviated version. If you don’t agree with a law, you acquit.

    If someone is driving without a $100 sticker on their car, and you think public roads are called public roads because they belong to the public, and you don’t have to buy a bloody sticker to use them, then you acquit.

    If someone hits a patch of ice on the road and hits a tree, and the judge wants to fine them $300 and to not do so would be denying the state funds, you acquit. If the tree doesn’t show up as the victim to testify, there is no case, and you acquit.

    If they pass a law that says a person breathing hurts the public good, and someone is being prosecuted for breathing, for which their is ample evidence and eye witness damning testimony that they were in fact breathing, and you don’t agree with the law, you acquit.

    And if two people are having voluntary sex, regardless of age, and there is no victim, then you acquit. There are already other rational laws regarding involuntary coercive sex, i.e., real rape. Statutory rape is not rape, its a made up profit center joke that makes a mockery of the idea of justice.

      While I agree with you that there is no crime here, I think she probably should have lost her job. At the most.
