PHOENIX— On Friday, former Goodyear school teacher, Brittany Zamora, was sentenced to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to Sexual Conduct with a Minor, Attempted Molestation of a Child and Public Sexual Indecency in connection to a sexual relationship with a young student.
According to the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, on March 21, 2018 police were alerted by school staff about a sexual relationship between a 13-year-old and his teacher after the victim’s parents found evidence of the relationship on their son’s phone using a parental monitoring app.
The teen’s parents were also receiving phone calls from Zamora trying to convince the victim’s family not to tell police about her actions.
the investigation revealed that Zamora had initially contacted the victim through text messages over a school break and started a sexual relationship soon after.
Zamora had a sexual encounter with the victim at least once at school while another minor was in the room.
