20-year sentence for teacher, who had sex with child pupil

A PAEDOPHILE teacher, who had sex with a 13-year-old boy, was branded “foul, sick and disgusting” by the child’s mother, as she was jailed for 20 years.

Brittany Zamora, 28, was sentenced, during an emotional hearing at court in Phoenix, Arizona, last Friday.

In a scathing, victim-impact statement before the sentencing, the boy’s mother, who was not named to protect his identity, said: “I hate you for what you did to my son and family. We should not suffer for someone else’s sick pleasure, but we all are.”

Prosecutors and the boy’s parents condemned Zamora for grooming the youngster for sex, then leaving him traumatised after sexually-assaulting him on at least four occasions.

His mother said: “She tried to groom my child into believing this behaviour is okay. She’s a true definition of a child predator.”

She added: “Your mind is foul, your heart is sick and you disgust me! You deserve to leave prison when you’re too old to bear children.”

She then screamed: “You’re forever labelled a child molester, and everyone hates a child molester!”

Zamora remained silent during the diatribe, and, after the judge sentenced her, giving credit for the 500 days she had already spent in prison, the victim’s parents stormed out of the courtroom in disgust.

Previously, Zamora had pleaded guilty to charges related to the sexual abuse of her student. But she attempted to apologise to her victim and his family during the hearing, in a packed courtroom.

“I am a good and genuine person, who made a mistake, and regret it deeply,” said the former teacher, who was arrested in March 2018 after she it was discovered that she’d had sex with the boy numerous times: once in a classroom, while another boy was her look-out.

The youngster later told police: “They were just doing it. It was very uncomfortable. It’s weird how a 27-year-old can, like, love a 13-year-old and do stuff. It’s just crazy. She’s not a good person.”
