Kennedale Teacher Arrested, Accused Of Having Sex With Students

ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – A Kennedale High School teacher turned herself in to police in Arlington on Monday morning after allegations were made that she’d had inappropriate relationships with five students.

Brittni Nicole Colleps is accused of having sexual intercourse with the students at her Arlington home, and is charged with five counts of inappropriate relationship between a student and teacher.

While all of the students involved were 18 or older, it is against state law for teachers to have a sexual relationship with students.

The encounters in question happened during April and May of this year.

The Arlington Police Department began investigating the 27-year-old teacher after police in Kennedale and Kennedale High School staff notified them of the allegations.

Parents said that the five students bragged about having sex with Colleps.

According to police, detectives soon discovered some inappropriate cell phone communications. “During the investigation they discovered that… there was an exchange of text messages between at least one student and the teacher that included sexually explicit photos,” explained Arlington Police Department spokeswoman Tiara Richard. “And also the student described being involved in a sexual relationship with the teacher.”

Police also talked with students who described in detail having been in Colleps home and having had sexual intercourse with her there last week.

“Our understanding at this point is at least one of the encounters involved all five boys in the same time period, but there were other times when it was one student with the teacher,” said Richard.

Colleps, who is now on administrative leave, was a first-year English teacher and freshman girls basketball coach.

The Kennedale Independent School District posted a letter about the situation from Superintendent Gary Dugger on the high school’s website. It does not mention Colleps by name and makes only vague references to what allegedly happened. Click here to read the letter.

The charge of inappropriate relationship between a student and teacher is a felony.

Colleps was released from the Arlington City Jail on Monday afternoon, after posting a $125,000 bond.

Police in Arlington said that their investigation continues, as they try to determine if more students may have been involved.

    Why is Van Halen’s “Hot For Teacher” playing in my head right now?

      Who really cares, these were adults, they have the right to do as they please as long as they are not hurting anyone else. This same thing happens in colleges all over the country, are those professors/teachers being charged? You can’t bring morality into it, because that would assume someone was hurt by the activities, or that the students were not the age of consent, let alone their being ADULTS!

      Apparently they enjoyed themselves, until someone got either jealous or otherwise upset with Teacher for not paying enough attention or passing a failing grade.

      Seriously, and 18 &19 year old’s are subject to draft, can sign a legal binding contract and even marry without parental consent. BUT, GOD FORBID they want to have sexual intercourse; now they are children and the teacher is an evil pedophile that took advantage of ADULT MALES?

      Now if this were 13-16 year old teens, yeah there is a problem, that is a totally different situation. If it were 17 year old, that is a sketchy area… like the Romeo and Juliet kind of thing, just reversed… BUT OF COURSE THAT IS DISGUSTING, BECAUSE IT IS A WOMAN WHO IS OLDER; WHICH IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE… I can hear the bibles exploding now. Give me a break. Sounds like a double standard out there. these are adults, not an adult and children, therefore this matter is between them, no one else.

      Personally, I think they would think they would want the hot cheerleaders, but hey, to each their own, we all have our little freakish side, maybe this was theirs.. lol

        The problem here, Chester, is it’s still against the law. Silly law when it involves all parties being the age of consent? Yep. Very silly law. It’s also silly that I can’t buy hard liquor after 9pm in this state and never on Sunday. However, it’s the law.

      2. rocky says:

        teachers have a moral turpitude clause…

        1. These weren’t college students, they were high schoolers. Fairly sure you can get fired in college (at least) for it too.
        2. The teacher knows better, it’s her fault. If she wanted to bang 18 year olds she should have worked somewhere else.
        3. She has a husband in the military who is overseas and at least one kid I believe.
        4. 17 is legal in Texas, but that’s irrelevant because of point 2.

        This has nothing to do with pedophilia. It has to do with conflict of interest and her profession. No one held a gun to her head and told her to be a teacher and have an orgy.

  2. YRofTexas says:

    When I was in High School, one of our 22 yr old male teachers married a fellow student of 16 who was a year ahead of me. It was Plano, 1974.

    How would this be handled today?

    It seems that (just from article), this teacher was not discreet, and appears to have persued several students just for sex, so she did step over the line….

    1. 2sister says:

      He would be charged with an improper relationship. I don’t believe teachers can even have any kind of romantic relationship with a student.

    1. billy3 says:

      Sounds like this teacher WAS involved.

  15. Mike says:

    Where were all of these teachers when I was in middle & high school?

  16. kermit dupre says:

    When I went to school our parents didn’t ask what the teacher did, they wanted to know what you did. My old man would have said ” I don’t want to know what that teacher did I want to know what you did, I’am raising you not that teacher”. This is a disciplinarily problem not a teacher problem. It takes two and both should be considered guilty.

  17. Angela Bolls says:

    wow, all 5 at once, huh? sounds like she might’ve been goin for the ‘teacher gang$#@!’ porn, someone shoulda told her it only sells if ur hot & of age!

  18. Hemroidious says:

    So what, she didn’t molest them. They wanted, she wanted. It’s a win, win situation. Know what I mean? Nudge, nudge.

      Still against state law. Wink, wink. A wink is as good as a nudge to a blind bat. Still… WHOA, eh?

        Thanks! ;^)

      Go ugly and beat the rush.

  21. Beanz says:

    She should be jailed on stupidity alone. What teenage boy has ever been able to keep their mouth shut about boning? She must have WANTED to get caught. :/

  22. Richard Patterson says:

    I went to kennedale high school class of 2001 this teacher is fugly. Secondly, there were students and teachers going at it when i was in school and no one said anything. I personally had an encounter with a male teacher there, i will not mention names.

  23. Lathan says:

    Omg, five at one time how embarrassing for her husband. Honestly everyone has needs but a grown woman sleeping with high school students
    is a terrible look. I am sure there are plenty of 25 and up men that would have helped scratch her itch. And don’t judge her on the arrest photo, no one looks good in those.

  24. Vanna says:

    This is really sad.

  25. NiteNurse says:

    “STUPID” is the first thought that came to my mind after reading the article.

  26. BDK says:

    We should be grateful someone this stupid isn’t teaching anymore.

  27. ilvrw says:

    And with budget cuts, we will be weeding out all the tenured teachers for more young, cheaper ones. This might become a trend.

    1. billy3 says:

      I don’t think they get much cheaper than this, unless they give a discount if you don’t have a moustache.

  28. bill goodson says:

    wow, no wonder school are having budget problems, Superintendent Gary Dugger has 3 secretaries!

  29. chris h says:

    I graduatedin 2004 and I KNOW of 2 teachers who had sex with atleast 3 of my buddies. She wasn’t a beast like this lady. but it happends all the time.

    1. I Am Zee Grammar Und Spelling Nazi! says:

      Kind of like how you can be functionally illiterate and still graduate from high school. It HAPPENDS!

  30. Debra says:

    CHESTER WHO CARES!!!!! Are you crazy! She is a married woman, she is a mother to her 3 children. If she wants to have sex with who knows how many, then get a DIVORCE and let your husband have custody of all children. Also, she is a school teacher try to set a GOOD EXAMPLE for students or get out of teaching all together.

    1. billy3 says:

      Who’s Chester?

  31. Clayton Bigsby says:

    I wonder how many of the five were smelly gorillas…

    1. billy3 says:

  35. Maria Martinéz says:
