An Arizona teacher convicted of performing oral sex on a 13-year-old male student in a classroom while another student watched has been sentenced to a 20-year prison term.

Investigators said that Las Brisas Academy elementary teacher Brittany Zamora groomed a 13-year-old student for sex via messages over a school app between February and March of this year.

According to court documents, one of the teens on the app began flirting with the teacher and that eventually led to more contact with her.

At Zamora’s sentencing, the mother of one of the children said the teacher used her power over the boys as a weapon.

“Ms. Zamora lures these boys, earns their trust and then takes advantage of them purely to fill her own sexual desires,” the mother of the boy who was asked to serve as a lookout said in court. “She used her position of power to molest a child. She’s a pedophile and no different than if a man were sitting in her place right now.”

For her part, Zamora insisted she is sorry for her conduct and apologized to the teens and their families.

“I am a good and genuine person who made a mistake and regret it deeply,” Zamora told the court. “I lived my life respecting and trying to obey every law. I’m not a threat to society by any means.”

Zamora’s conduct also led to a $2.5 million lawsuit filed by the parents against the school district.

The parents’ attorney claimed that most of the alleged sexual misconduct between Zamora and the student took place after the school became informed of the conduct.

“It was preventable,” Tempe attorney Michael Medina said. “We want to hold the school district accountable so this never happens again in the future.”

Zamora initially pleaded not guilty to the charges but later changed her plea to guilty. She has been in jail since first being arrested for the crime and will be credited with the time served.

    What is the matter with these teachers? Are they so inmature they need sex with a child, or are they pedophiles to begin with and go into teaching so they have access to children? There seems to be a rash of teachers and children sex in the last few years. It is about time the women were given the same sentences that men are given.

    Where was she when I was 13? I’m sure the “poor kid” is “traumatized” so much, he still has wet dreams about it.

      I know that’s right! At 13, i would have smashed that as much as I could. I would never have been traumatized! I would have been the cock of the walk!

    So he initiated the contact by constantly flirting with this teacher. Had a buddy come along to film the contact,He was not forced or coerced, they probably shared the video and someone else reported it. The boys did not. Now if he did not want to do this all he had to say was no we need to stop doing this but he did not. Now the teacher was extremely stupid for doing this and should have gone out and picked up almost any guy to do this with. Now she has ruined her life until the day she dies.

    A crime of this nature does not deserve a 20 year sentence! Some murderers are not locked up for that long! Courts without justice. Think “Scarlet Letter”.

    Take your strap on with you to jail. No little kiddies there. Maybe you can teach the other inmates how to have sex with an under aged child. You deserve everything you got bitch.
