abc brittni colleps dm 120816 wblog Teacher Accused of Having Group Sex With Students on VideoA former Texas high school English teacher and mother of three is on trial, accused of having sex with five male students.

The evidence against Brittni Colleps, 28, includes cell phone video that allegedly shows group sex between her and four students at her home. Prosecutors say it happened while her children and husband, who is an Army specialist stationed out-of-state, were away. The graphic video was shown to the jury this week.

“She [Colleps] said that she craved, that I had something that she wanted,” one of the students involved testified.

Police say the alleged incident took place at her Arlington, Texas home in April and May of 2011, according to ABC News affiliate WFAA. Since all of the students were 18 at the time of the alleged incident, Colleps is not facing statutory rape charges. Instead, she has been hit with five counts of having an improper relationship with a student.

One student told WFAA that one of the teenage boys was bragging about the alleged incident and another student put the claim in her diary. A teacher at the school found the diary in a classroom and that’s when the school notified police. …  ..

Colleps’ husband, Christopher, is sticking by his wife despite the accusations.

“If you know Brittni, you know she’s an empathetic loving, loyal person. Brittni is a loving mother and continuously puts the needs of our children above her own,” Christopher Colleps said before the trial began.

Brittni Colleps was suspended by the school district and her contract was not renewed this year, so she is out of work during the trial.

“She’s terrified … she has no idea whether she is going to prison next week or whether she will be home,” her attorney said.

If Colleps is convicted, she could spend 20 years in prison. …

She had consensual sex with five 18-year-old adult “boys” and she’s 28. That’s extreme and a good way to get an STD, but it’s not a crime. It’s not even a crime if she was 80 and they were 18. (See Harold and Maude.) They were all adults under the law. She obviously needs “the rabbit” and a career change, but prison for 20 years, even for 20 minutes is absurd. If it was five 18-year-olds who were not her students, there would be no crime and not trial at all.

But wait, this is Texas. Is “the rabbit” even legal in Texas? You may recall that for over 35 years it was against the law in Texas to sell sex toys reminiscent of male genitals. CBS News Sept 15, 2010 had this story:

… A federal appeals court has overturned a statute outlawing sex toy sales in Texas, one of the last states – all in the South – to retain such a ban.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Texas law making it illegal to sell or promote obscene devices, punishable by as many as two years in jail, violated the right to privacy guaranteed by the 14th Amendment.

Companies that own Dreamer’s and Le Rouge Boutique, which sell the devices in its Austin stores, and the retail distributor Adam & Eve sued in federal court in Austin in 2004 over the constitutionality of the law. They appealed after a federal judge dismissed the suit and said the Constitution did not protect their right to publicly promote such devices.

In its decision Tuesday, the appeals court cited Lawrence and Garner v. Texas, the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2003 opinion that struck down bans on consensual sex between same-sex couples.

“Just as in Lawrence, the state here wants to use its laws to enforce a public moral code by restricting private intimate conduct,” the appeals judges wrote. “The case is not about public sex. It is not about controlling commerce in sex. It is about controlling what people do in the privacy of their own homes because the state is morally opposed to a certain type of consensual private intimate conduct. …

Everyone with strong moral opposition to consensual private intimate conduct which is none of their business should consent to 24 hour monitoring and wearing of a shock collar. The constantly watching Internet audience could then remotely electrocute them for any moral transgressions. I think they’d love it.  It’s the golden rule:  They want to physically punish people who violate their moral  views, so they should be placed in the same hellish world that they are craving and advocating.  Round up those high and mighty conservative Texans and let’s get the show started!

    The law these days more than ever can twist itself to achieve whatever it wants, despite what the law actually states. I agree, Zeno. It’s a witch hunt. She should be dismissed from her job for her conduct with students, yet they were all adults, so no criminal charges should be possible. Even in college, “students”, which may be anywhere from 17 to 70, are selectively regarded as children. In cases where faculty have affairs with students, charges fall into a grey area: How old does an adult have to be to really be an adult? Seems the standards are highly flexible…

    BTW, it’s not just in the South. Here’s a good example: I taught anatomy and physiology in the nursing program of a community college in Pennsylvania. All community colleges there are extensions of the public school system, which funds them. That being so, the state’s “morality” laws apply to community college professors. I got written up and eventually lost my job because I taught nursing students about sex and sexual anatomy in my A&P course. Also was written up because I talked about drugs and alcohol and how they affect the body, their target sites, etc. How can you teach pharmacology, but leave out certain drugs if they happen to also be used for recreational use (like ketamine, used extensively in anesthesia)?! In college, we tell the students that they are in the big leagues now, yet we continue to infantalize them. High school, of course, is much worse.
