Convicted teacher Brittni Colleps appeared on television this week and claimed she was victimized because her orgy with a group of students was recorded without her permission.
The most damning evidence against Colleps was that graphic, homemade videotape of her group sex.(h/t Jawa Howie)
"I felt like I was victimized in that video, because I did not, I never gave my consent for it,” Colleps said in a jailhouse interview with “20/20” airing Friday night.
Colleps’ case was unique — not only for its extremely lewd nature — but also because the students she had sex with were consenting adults at the time.
That being the case, she did not face rape charges. Rather, Colleps faced the charge of “having improper relations with students,” stemming from a Texas law, which prohibits teachers from having sex with students — at any age.
