North Texas Teacher Arrested in Sexting Pic Scandal


A female high school coach and teacher surrendered to Arlington police Monday morning after a warrant was issued for her arrest involving a sex scandal with multiple students.

Investigators say some students allegedly involved with 27-year-old Brittni Colleps had exchanged sexually explicit texts and pictures with her.

Colleps is a first-year teacher of English and girls' freshman basketball at Kennedale High School, according to her school bio page, which has since disappeared.

She is accused of having improper relationships with five male Kennedale High School students, who are all 18 years old or older. However, it is against the law for teachers to have sex with students, no matter what their ages.

Arlington police began investigating the allegations on Wednesday, May 11 after the school staff and Kennedale police notified the agency. According to investigators, the students described having sex with Colleps at her Arlington home during April and May of this year.

Colleps is married to a man who serves in the military, and is currently stationed elsewhere. Her attorney tells FOX 4 the couple has three children. Investigators say the children were not at the home during the offenses.

Colleps posted $125,000 bail Monday afternoon. She is charged with five felony counts of inappropriate relationship between a teacher and a student.
