Brittany Zamora, the former Arizona teacher was sentenced to 20 years in prison for molesting and having sexual relationship with a 13-year-old student.
When she was arrested last year, the police said she had sex with a boy in classroom while other student watched.
Zamora taught 6th-grade students at Las Brisas Academy in Goodyear.
“On one occasion, Zamora asked an 11-year-old boy who was a friend of the 13-year-old to stand watch during an encounter in her classroom”– Police said.
“Ms. Zamora lures these boys, earns their trust and then takes advantage of them purely to fill her own sexual desires,” — Victims mother said.
She was arrested on the charges of sexual conduct with a minor, attempted molestation of a child and public sexual indecency.
“I am a good and genuine person who made a mistake and regret it deeply,” Zamora told the court in Maricopa County before sentencing.
“I lived my life respecting and trying to obey every law. I’m not a threat to society by any means.”– she added.
while the state prosecutor called for her to serve 27 years, Judge gave Brittany Zamora the minimum sentence she faced.
“Today’s sentencing is fitting for an individual who exploited her position as a teacher to groom and then abuse a young teen student,” Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery said in a press release.
“Prosecutors and law enforcement will continue to be relentless in making Arizona the most unwelcome place for child sex predators.”
The victims mother was deeply hurt and said she shouldn’t be allowed to be close with children.
“I hate you for what you did to my son and my family. We should not suffer for your sick pleasure,” the mother said in a statement read by her attorney.
“You should never have children. You should never be close to children within your own family.”
