Good. She raped a child. Too often we see the justice system go easy on female teachers who rape kids, but this sentence seems appropriate.
A former Arizona teacher who pleaded guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old boy has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Brittany Zamora, 28, from Goodyear, will receive credit for the nearly 500 days she has already served.
‘I am a good and genuine person who made a mistake and regret it deeply,’ Zamora said during a hearing on Friday morning, according to the Arizona Republic.
‘I lived my life respecting and trying to obey every law. I’m not a threat to society by any means.’
After apologizing to the victims and her family, she told Judge Sherry Stephens that she plans to earn a new degree in prison so she can start a new life when she gets out, reported the newspaper.
Per the conditions of her sentencing, she cannot be released on good behavior. This means that when Zarmora is done serving her sentence, she will be 48 or 49 years old.
After she is released, she will need to register as a sex offender and then begin serving two lifetime terms of probation.
