Arizona teacher had sex with teen in front of another student and they even sexually touched each other in class
27-year-old Brittany Zamora is accused of sending her 13-year-old student sexually explicit messages and having sex with him on numerous occasions
An Arizona high school teacher is facing trial for sending her 13-year-old student sexually explicit messages, including nudes, and also having sex with him on numerous occasions — in her car, in the classroom, and even at the victim's grandparents' home.
According to Arizona Central, 27-year-old Brittany Zamora, formerly a teacher at the Las Brisas Academy Elementary School in the Liberty Elementary School District, started the affair with the victim after she asked her students to install an online instruction app called 'Class Craft' because she was "bored."
The messages with the 13-year-old quickly became flirtatious, and soon, of a sexually explicit nature. Court records stated they once sexually touched each other in the class while the other students were watching a video.
He often sent her notes on brightly-colored sticky notes in class, some of which were love letters while others were more of an obscene nature. She, in turn, sent him naked pictures of herself and others of her in her lingerie.
It escalated further one night when the victim was staying at his grandparents' place. She reportedly messaged him and asked if she could come over and show him how much she loved him. Zamora, who was married to a man she knew for more than a decade, claimed her husband had gone fishing.
The teen snuck out of the home at midnight to meet the 27-year-old in her car, where they then performed oral sex on one another. She returned the next night again and they had sex briefly before she had to leave because her husband called. A few days later, when she was in a room with the victim and a friend to help them prepare for a talent show, she had sex with the teen again, this time making the friend stand guard to ensure no one would catch them.
The affair came to light after the boy's parents noticed he was acting strangely. They had installed an app called Sentry Parental Control on his phone to monitor explicit messages and noticed his exchanges with Zamora. When they confronted him, he confessed.
The parents claimed that when they decided to report the 27-year-old to the authorities, her husband, Daniel, called them and begged them to not complain.
They told police Daniel "harassed" the victim's father over the phone and begged him to not report his wife because she had "made a big mistake, but that she loved the kids."
He also allegedly suggested he and the dad "meet up" and "settle this."
Zamora was arrested last March on suspicion of sexual misconduct and subsequently charged with 10 counts of sexual conduct with a minor, two counts of molestation, two counts of furnishing sexually explicit material to a minor, and one count of public sexual indecency.
She is currently being held at the Maricopa County Jail on a $250,000 bond awaiting trial and has pleaded not guilty to her charges. She's scheduled to appear in court in May for a status conference on the case.
