A former Davis High School teacher who pleaded guilty to three counts of forcible sexual abuse involving students in 2015 is out of prison.

Brianne Altice is currently on parole, according to the Utah Department of Corrections. She was released Tuesday.

Before being granted parole in April, she told the parole board that she took advantage of the teens' attention because she had problems with self-esteem.

Altice was ordered to complete a two-year sex offender treatment program in 2017. She must also pay restitution through counseling for her victims.

Altice was sentenced to as little as two, and as many as 30 years in prison for the charges. The Davis County Attorney's Office said the former teacher had "layers of excuses" for her behavior and was "not taking responsibility" for the crimes.

"If I could, I would personally apologize to each individual who has been negatively affected by this," Altice said in court in July 2015. "I'm sorry, and today I become accountable to more than just myself. Grief fills my heart for all involved. I take responsibility for what I've done and what I've failed to do."
