A MARRIED teacher who allegedly had sex with a 13-year-old pupil in her classroom and sent him a string of raunchy texts pleaded guilty yesterday.
Brittany Zamora, 28, faces up to 30 years in prison after being accused of romping with the teen in Goodyear, Arizona.
The sixth grade teacher was arrested in March last year after her victim’s horrified parents found she had bombarded him with x-rated messages.
She told the child that he gets “sexier to me every day” – adding: “I want you every day with no time limit”.
Zamora first began grooming the boy through her school’s own educational social media app at Las Brias Academy, prosecutors say.
She used a programme called Classcraft to talk to students outside of school – including her victim.
If I could quit my job and (have sex with) you all day long, I would
Message allegedly sent by teacher to teen pupil
Zamora then allegedly had several trysts with the boy – including in her classroom as another student acted as lookout.
Authorities say that they sexually touched each other while other pupils were watching a video in class.
The married teacher drove to his grandparents’ house to have sex in her car while her husband was away fishing, court docs claimed.
They swapped intimate pictures – with Zamora allegedly sending the boy naked snaps and photos of her in lingerie.
In return, the boy wrote his teacher love letters on sticky notes – including one that read: “You are sexy”, cops said.
‘STRING OF TRYSTS’
Zamora, who started at the school a year before the allegations emerged, allegedly had sex with the teen at least four times between February 1 and March 8 last year.
After one supposed tryst, the boy is said to have messaged her asking to sleep with her again.
Zamora allegedly responded: “I know baby! I want you every day with no time limit.”
She added: “If I could quit my job and (have sex with) you all day long, I would.”
The boy who claimed to have stood guard as Zamora molested her victim told cops: “I was one of the witnesses.
“One of the people that saw Ms Zamora and my friend…touch each other.”
He added: “It’s, like 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.”
TEACHER ‘DATED’ TEEN
Some students even believed Zamora and her victim were “dating”.
According to school records, a pupil told Principal Tom Dickey: “Everyone talks about them having an inappropriate relationship outside of class and at recess.
“I’ve heard other kids in my class say that they think they are dating.”
The victim’s distraught parents are suing Liberty Elementary School District claiming that school authorities did not do enough to protect their son.
They are seeking £1.9 million in damages, according to the lawsuit filed to Maricopa County Superior Court.
According to police records, the boy’s father told detectives: “His childhood is already gone. He’s 13.
Police bodycam footage of Zamora’s arrest showed her panicking about being attacked in jail.
She said: “I’m little. They’re gonna tear me apart.”
Zamora’s husband, who she has known since she was 16 and married in 2015, remained supportive during her arrest.
He told cops: “Brittany is an adult. She’s the best, the best person I’ve ever known.”
It’s unclear if they are still together.
Zamora was originally charged with 10 counts of sexual conduct with a minor and two counts of molestation.
She also faced two counts of furnishing sexually explicit material to a minor and one count public sexual indecency.
But a plea deal with prosecutors means she has admitted sexual conduct with a minor, attempted molestation of a minor and public sexual indecency.
She will be sentenced on July 12.
