This explanation is unbelievable but she offered it anyway…
Independent has more…
A teacher who was jailed after she admitted sexual contact with three of her students has reportedly defended her relationship with one of the victims, saying she helped to improve his grades.
Altice originally faced a range of 14 felony charges including five counts of rape, and a lawsuit has now been lodged against her and her former employer, Davis High School, by one of the victims and his parents.
Altice wrote that she could not afford a lawyer, but insisted she had never been reprimanded by the school for her conduct in the classroom.
She said the boy had come to her for advice on his difficult relationship with his parents, and described how he would stand up for her in school by “thwart[ing] inappropriate comments directed at her”.
“Ms. Altice expressed and advised [the boy] to communicate with his parents and continue to do his best in school,” the teacher wrote, adding the boy’s grades showed improvement while she was his teacher.
The original complaint alleged that the school’s management was told about Altice’s inappropriate behaviour with her male students, but did not act on the information. The school has denied officials had any knowledge of what was going on.
The Tribune reported that no trial date had been set for the lawsuit.
