A Texas jury watched a shocking video Tuesday allegedly showing a former high school teacher engaged in group sex with four of her male students, according to reports.
While the cell phone video didn’t reveal the face of married English teacher Brittni Colleps, a student identified as “Aaron” pointed out to jurors a unique tattoo on the woman’s lower back – allegedly the same as his teacher’s, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.
According to Aaron’s testimony, Colleps, 28, told another Kennedale High School student who filmed the tryst, “Don’t put the light in my eyes.”
The alleged seductress was arrested in May 2011 when investigators were told she may have engaged in sex acts with several male students and sent explicit texts and photos, according to the Star-Telegram.
Aaron testified sharing hundreds of texts that became more sexual in nature. They eventually agreed to meet for sex. “You have something I want,” Colleps allegedly told him, according to Fox affiliate KDFW.
Aaron said in court he had sex with Colleps five times in spring 2011 – four of those instances included other male students. While all were reportedly 18 or older at the time, it’s illegal in Texas for a teacher to engage in sex acts with a student.
Colleps is accused of pursuing five students, and was charged in each case. All five of them are expected to testify, according to NBC 5 in Dallas.
The former teacher remained silent when asked how she would plead to the charges Tuesday, leaving a judge to register a “not guilty” plea, the Star-Telegram reported. Her attorney didn’t give an opening statement.
Colleps reportedly turned away while the video was played for jurors. The sex romp allegedly occurred in her family’s home while her husband and three young children were out.
During one victim’s testimony, Tarrant County Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Beach asked what occurred that night, NBC 5 reported.
“We all started performing oral sex and having sexual intercourse with her,” he responded.
Another witness, Kennedale High School Principal Rita Whatley, testified that Colleps initially denied the sex allegations when they met in May 2011, according to the Star-Telegram.
Meanwhile, Colleps’ husband, who is serving in the military, has previously said he will stand by his wife.
“I hope you will not pass judgment on her because you don’t have all the facts or details according to this situation,” Christopher Colleps said in May 2011, according to KDFW. “I want you to know I love my wife. I have loved my wife since I laid eyes on her 11 years ago. I have always supported my wife and will continue to support her through this entire ordeal.”
If Colleps is convicted, she faces up to 20 years behind bars and a $10,000 fine for each of the five charges.
