Brianne Altice, an English teacher at a reputable Utah high school, was arrested for having sex with at least one of her students.

Asked for comment by the Telegraph, Burgess said through tears:

"I don't want to say anything. I'm OK, thank you."

The BBC reports that the quartet of alleged sexual offenses between the teacher and her student took place between January 1-August 28, 2013.

According to the Daily Mail, Burgess may have developed a relationship with the teenager while she was directing a school musical production last year.

It's unclear whether the victim is cooperating with officials or exactly how and when the sexual activity came to the attention of authorities in Wales.

As is often the case, there are more questions to be asked than have been answered, but what's undoubtedly clear is that this seems to happen a lot.
