Goodyear teacher accused of sexually abusing 6th-grade student may enter plea deal

Brittany Zamora, the Goodyear teacher accused of having sex with a 13-year-old boy who was one of her students, was back in court Wednesday morning.

PHOENIX — Wednesday's court appearance by Brittany Zomara was very brief, lasting only five minutes. It was a motion by Zamora’s defense to delay the trial and set a plea date for some time in June.

The 28-year-old appeared in court Wednesday morning for a status hearing. The hearing set a trial date for September and a possible plea deal for June. 

Zamora was arrested in March of 2018, accused of sexually abusing a 13-year-old boy who was one of her students. 

Our I-Team investigation revealed Zamora allegedly lured the boy through an online school chat room that led to texting and ultimately sexual encounters in and out of her classroom.
