Teacher Brittany Zamora sentenced to 20 years in prison for sexual abuse of 13-year-old student

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.

The boy's mother said she hated Zamora for what she'd done to her child.

Zamora had pleaded guilty to sexual conduct with a minor, as well as other reduced charges of public indecency and molestation, according to court records, for having an ongoing sexual relationship with a 13-year-old boy in her class at Las Brisas Academy.

Zamora apologised to her victim, and both his and her own family, and told the court her actions were "out of character".

"I am a good and genuine person who made a mistake and regret it deeply", she said. "I'm not a threat to society".

Zamora has been behind bars since her arrest and will get credit for time served.

The 28-year-old was arrested in March of last year.

The parents' attorney claimed that most of the alleged sexual misconduct between Zamora and the student took place after the school became informed of the conduct.

That's when the teen admitted to having sex with Zamora. "She's a true definition of a child predator".

The much-married Zamora once told the boy she wanted sex with him "every day with no time limit".

Zamora has said that she would like to avail of counselling sessions in prison.

"I'm little. They're gonna tear me apart", she reportedly said.
