FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) - A teenager who testified against a former Utah high school teacher accused of having sex with three underage boys pleaded guilty to witness tampering charges Tuesday.

Prosecutors say the 18-year-old sent threatening messages through Snapchat to another alleged victim of 35-year-old Brianne Altice (ALL-tyce).

He pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor attempted witness tampering charges Tuesday, but the pleas won’t be entered as convictions if keeps a deal with prosecutors.

The terms included his testimony against Altice Thursday. Prosecutors say the two had a sexual relationship when he was 17 and it continued after she was arrested on charges alleging sex with other underage boys.

The Standard-Examiner reports (https://bit.ly/1GqvaIx) Altice is facing more than a dozen charges and is scheduled to appear in court Thursday. She has pleaded not guilty.
