The conversation ended because it was time for recess, the documents state.

The second boy’s parents declined to prosecute.

Zamora, a former teacher at Las Brisas Academy, was arrested in 2018, when the stepmother of a 13-year-old boy noticed that he was acting suspiciously and wanting to shut his door at night. She installed a parental monitoring app called “Sentry” on his phone and subsequently began getting alerts about inappropriate texts, so she confronted the boy. He told his stepmother that he had sexual contact with his sixth-grade teacher.
