A SEX-CRAZED teacher jailed for romping with three pupils has lost her bid for freedom.
Brianne Altice, who was caged for up to 30 years, blamed “self-esteem issues” for her crimes.
And the mum-of-two, 37, claimed she had taken responsibility for what she did and was “extremely remorseful”.
But a parole board has refused to let her out of prison until at least another hearing in April 2019.
She has also been ordered to complete a two-year sex offender treatment programme and pay £600 towards counselling for her victims.
Altice was described by one of her teen lovers as a “teacher with benefits” as they continued sessions AFTER she had already been arrested for under-age sex.
Romps behind her husband’s back included one in a church car park.
And pupils at their school reportedly had a running joke of “Who is Ms Altice sleeping with now?”
She was caught after one of the boys described tattoos on her body.
The 16-year-old also gave cops an accurate layout of the house where he said they had intercourse at least five times.
Altice was arrested after he tipped off cops in 2013 – and two 17-year-old students then came forward saying she had also been having sex with them.
She was fired shortly afterwards as an English teacher at Davis High School in Kaysville, Utah, and her husband filed for divorce and custody of their children.
Altice was jailed in July 2015 for two to 30 years after pleading guilty to three counts of forcible sexual abuse.
She made an emotional bid to get out of jail last month, telling a parole hearing: “They said this and that and made me feel good about myself.
“So I justified everything. There’s no justification for it.”
The blonde sobbed: “I clearly lost sight of all my values and my principles and was seeking inappropriate means to address my own issues. Issues I’m very aware of now.”
Utah Board of Pardons and Parole Vice-Chairman Robert Yeates said some of the meetings with the youngest pupil happened during lunch hours.
He asked Altice: “Did you grasp the gravity of this?”
“I do not believe I did,” she replied.
Altice will never be able to teach again but apparently has a job lined up at a legal service once she is released from prison.
She said she was taking responsibility for her actions.
“This was my doing,” she cried.
“This was no one else’s fault but my own.
“This was not my ex-husband’s fault, or the school’s fault, or my students’ fault.
“These were my poor, poor decisions. I’m very aware of it now and I am very remorseful. I regret the decisions I made that brought us here.”
