Vinik is a part of a new generation of teachers who belong to woke ideology, as made evident by Vinik having previously led a group at the school to put on a drag show. Arrests arising from teachers preying on students have become a worrying trend in recent months.
Vinik was also an overseer of the school’s “Q Space” afterschool program, which was described as a “space students will learn about LGBTQIA+ history, create community, and engage in individual and group work exploring identity and collaborating to discover community care and joy.”
According to Blaze, “On May 5, the school district put Vinik on administrative leave and initiated its own investigation. On the same day, Vinik resigned from her counselor position and is no longer an employee of the Tucson Unified School District.”
According to reports, Vinik turned herself in to authorities, where she was then arrested and charged with having sexual conduct with a minor.
The following statement was released by Dr. Gabriel Trujillo of the Tucson Unified School District:
“On May 4 2022, detectives from the Tucson Police Department (TPD) Sexual Assault Unit informed the administration of Tucson High Magnet School of an ongoing investigation into one of its counselors, Zobella Brazil Vinik.”
“The administration was informed of an alleged inappropriate relationship between the counselor and a 15-year-old student from Tucson High.”
According to local news, “TPD said Vinik’s ex-wife told law enforcement officials that the couple has been allowing the 15-year-old to live with them in their home.”
“She reported that the 29-year-old and the 15-year-old have been co-sleeping together and she recently found Vinik’s ‘underwear hidden under a pillow on the bed’ the student had been sleeping in.”
