A teacher has been jailed for 20 years after she admitted having sex with a 13-year-old boy multiple times.
But Brittany Zamora, 28, insists she’s a “good and genuine person” who is “not a threat to society”.
Police say she had sex with the boy multiple times, both in her car and her classroom, including one occasion when an 11-year-old pupil was in the room acting as lookout.
She admitted 10 counts of sexual misconduct with a minor, two counts of molestation, two of furnishing sexually explicit material to a minor and one of public sexual indecency.
She cannot be released early for good behaviour and must serve the entire two-decade term behind bars.
The former sixth-grade at Las Brisas Academy in Arizona was caught when the victim’s parents noticed he was acting unusually, and installed monitoring software on his phone.
The boy’s mother told the court: “Before, he was an innocent child, and now she stole his innocence from him. I hate Brittany Zamora for what she did to my son and family.
“Now you’ll spend the rest of your youth and most of your adulthood in jail… I will not allow you to interfere in my son’s life further.”
When she was arrested, Zamora told police she feared she would not survive behind in jail, saying: “I’m little. They’re gonna tear me apart.”
Zamora and her husband Daniel appear to still be on good terms, he told the court: “She is the best person I’ve ever known.”
