GOODYEAR, AZ (3TV/CBS5) -- The former teacher convicted of sex with a student has arrived at the prison where she will spend the next 20 years behind bars.

On Wednesday, Brittany Zamora arrived at the women's state prison, ASPC-Perryville in Goodyear. Her new prison photo was also released.

Zamora, a former sixth-grade teacher at Las Brisas Academy, was arrested by the Goodyear Police Department on March 22, 2018, when allegations surfaced that she had been sexually involved with a student, a 13-year-old boy.

Police said the teen's parents had discovered text messages between Zamora and the 13-year-old student, indicating sexual activity both on and off campus.

"The text messages found are sexual in nature that allege an ongoing relationship between the two," said Lisa Kutis with the Goodyear Police Department said at the time.
