Teacher Brittni Colleps, 28, was arrested in May when investigators believed they found evidence she may have engaged in inappropriate sexual acts with several male students and sent explicit text and picture messages, according to a Dallas Fox affiliate.
The video evidence shown in court Tuesday was allegedly shot by one student, who watched as Colleps and the other students had sex, according to the station, which also reports that all of the students in the video were over 18.
Colleps looked away from the video at some moments when the it was being shown in court, while one student highlighted the teacher’s unique lower back tattoo, according to Fox.
One student, identified as “Aaron,” reportedly testified that he had sex with the teacher for the first time at her home.
“You have something I want,” he said she told him.
Another witness, Kennedale High School Principal Rita Whatley said that Colleps initially denied the allegations of sexual relations when they met in May, the Star reports.
Brittni Nicole Colleps allegedly told one student, "You have something I want."
In court, Colleps remained silent when asked how she would plead to the charges before her, which the Star wrote was registered as a plea of “not guilty.”
Colleps’ husband, Christopher Colleps, has publically announced he will stick with the former teacher.
“I hope you will not pass judgment on her because you don’t have all the facts or details according to this situation,” Fox reported him saying in late May. “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.”
The couple’s attorney told the station the Colleps have three children and remain married.
