DAVIS COUNTY, Utah — A former Davis County high school teacher pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges resulting from accusations that she sexually abused a student, and this is the second set of charges that have been brought against her relating to sexual abuse of a student.

Brianne Altice will stand trial on four counts of rape and two counts of forcible sodomy. She had pleaded not guilty to some of the charges earlier, and Thursday she pleaded not guilty to the other charges, which stem from accusations from a second student that arose after charges were filed regarding the first student.

During the hearing, Altice asked the judge to suppress statements she made a year ago while police where in her home.

A hearing is scheduled for November 25 at 1 p.m., during which evidence and testimony will be presented regarding the statements Altice is requesting be suppressed.
