Last year, former Arizona middle school teacher Brittany Zamora reportedly coerced and assaulted a 13-year-old student at Las Brisas Academy Elementary School in Goodyear when she was 27. Police released texts between Zamora and the student following her arrest in March 2018. Arziona Republic reports that more disturbing details in the case have been revealed.
Speaking with a police interviewer, the 13-year-old boy said that he couldn't recall at what point did their interactions start to escalate to this alleged assault. "She said she wanted to give me a blow job and my stuff is really big and stuff like that," he explained. When asked about what he meant by "stuff," he clarified that he meant "penis." He said that one day during a parent-teacher meeting, she hugged and kissed him.
Zamora allegedly allegedly engaged in sexual activity with him at the back of the class room while other students were watching videos. During the interview, he said that she would often pretend to drop and look for stuff at her desk and would "touch his stuff." He added that he would send her notes during class that would explain what he wanted to do, while also proclaiming his love for her.
The situation continued for weeks. When he was staying at his grandparents' house, he snuck out to meet her in her car, where they performed oral sex on one another. The subsequent night, he said they engaged in intercourse. Zamora told him not to tell anyone what they had been up to, but he later told a friend.
The friend of the victim said that he saw the two have sex in her classroom while he was told to be a lookout. "They were just doing it," he explained. "It was very uncomfortable... 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." He was the only other student who watched.
The two of them asked the friend to stand watch the next day, but he refused and left. The victim told the friend that he had sex with her again after he refused to stand watch a second time.
The then-13-year-old victim's parents are reportedly suing Zamora, her husband, and the school district for $2.5 million in damages.
