A former middle school teacher in Arizona accused of having sex with a 13-year-old student enticed him into sexual assaults after texting him during days she wasn’t in school, newly released police reports show.
The documents, obtained by KPNX, show that 27-year-old Brittany Zamora — a former sixth-grade teacher at Las Brisas Academy Elementary School in Goodyear — connected with the teen she allegedly victimized in a classroom chat called “Class Craft,” in which Zamora asked students to text her after announcing that she wasn’t going to be in the class.
The purported victim told detectives that the messaging soon led to flirting between the pair, adding that he wasn’t sure exactly how it the situation turned “really intense,” according to the station. Zamora, who is married, soon peppered the boy with messages like “OMG, I love you,” prompting him to respond in kind, transcripts of the exchanges show.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
