Brianne Altice, a Utah high school teacher accused of having sex with a teenage student, pleaded not guilty in court this week to felony rape charges.

Altice, 34, turned heads in court as she showed up in a figure-hugging top, slim-fitted pants and high heels ... to deny the alleged sexual relationship.

She is accused of first hooking up with him in a church parking lot; the boy claimed his English teacher at Davis H.S. had sex with him at least three times.

The Kaysville, Utah, accuser was 16 at the time.

At a preliminary hearing, he alleged that he was having problems at home, having recently moved to Utah, and would cut class to hang out with his instructor.

Intimacy followed after an initial encounter in a church parking lot, he added. In November of last year, the boy reportedly admitted to the alleged affair.

The boy says that he had sexual intercourse with Altice at her home and at a park, between January and September 2013, reports The Davis Clipper.

Brianne Altice, hired by the school in 2012, was arrested after a police investigation last October. She was married but has since divorced from her husband.

The Standard-Examiner reports that her alleged victim was able to accurately describe the layout of Altice's home as well as the tattoos on her body.

It's not clear why he blew the whistle on the tryst.

At her arraignment on Thursday, Judge Thomas Kay scheduled a jury trial for May 12; Brianne pleaded not guilty to three counts of first-degree felony rape.
