Teacher jailed for 20 years after having sex with 13-year-old boyA teacher has been jailed for 20 years after she admitted having sex with a 13-year-old boy multiple times.But Brittany Zamora, 28, insists she’s a “good and genuine person” who is “not a threat to society”.Police say she had sex with the boy multiple times, both in her car and her classroom, including one occasion when an 11-year-old pupil was in the room acting as lookout.She admitted 10 counts of sexual misconduct with a minor, two counts of molestation, two of furnishing sexually explicit material to a minor and one of public sexual indecency.She cannot be released early for good behaviour and must serve the entire two-decade term behind bars.The former sixth-grade at Las Brisas Academy in Arizona was caught when the victim’s parents noticed he was acting unusually, and installed monitoring software on his phone.The boy’s mother told the court: "Before, he was an innocent child, and now she stole his innocence from him. I hate Brittany Zamora for what she did to my son and family."Now you'll spend the rest of your youth and most of your adulthood in jail… I will not allow you to interfere in my son's life further.”When she was arrested, Zamora told police she feared she would not survive behind in jail, saying: “I'm little. They're gonna tear me apart."Zamora and her husband Daniel appear to still be on good terms, he told the court: “She is the best person I’ve ever known.”
