Teacher Accused Of Having Sex With 13-Year-Old Pupil 'Made Friend Keep Watch'
The US teacher accused of having sex with one of her 13-year-old students, 'asked the victim's friend to keep watch' while they had sex in a classroom, according to AZ Central.
The newspaper reports that 28-year-old Brittany Zamora allegedly performed a number of sexual acts on the boy in her classroom at the Las Brisas Academy in the Phoenix suburb of Goodyear, and in her car.
It's alleged that after school one evening the boy and his friend stayed back to help out with an upcoming talent show and Zamora, who is married, was present.
It is claimed she began to kiss the boy, who can't be named for legal reasons, before asking his friend to 'stand guard' while they had sex.
According to AZ Central, the friend was then allegedly asked to keep a lookout a second time but refused.
Police interviews seen by the paper, claim cops spoke to the friend who said: "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."
Earlier this year, texts sent between the pair were released by police. Messages, allegedly sent by Zamora, read: "OMG, I love you,' and 'Omg lol you're so cute baby."
Another said: "I wish you could've stayed after with me."
And in response to a message reportedly sent by the victim saying he wanted to have sex with her again, a message read: "I know baby! I want you every day with no time limit...If I could quit my job and (have sex with) you all day long, I would."
Zamora has been charged with 10 counts of sexual conduct with a minor, two counts of molestation, two counts of furnishing sexually explicit material to a minor and one count public sexual indecency.
In December Zamora surrendered her state teaching certificate and is currently being held in a Maricopa County jail on a $250,000 (£189,250) bond, according to public court records.
The family of the boy are reportedly suing Zamora and the school district for $2.5million (£1.8m) in damages.
Attorney Steve Weinberger, who is representing the family, told The Republic: "It's affected him individually.
"It's affected their family dynamic. It's affected his behaviour and his schooling. It's disrupted his schooling. It's disrupted his living situation. They had to uproot his family and move."
