Michigan mom, Aimee L. Sword, sent to prison after having sex with teen son she gave up for adoption
Aimee L. Sword, 36, of Waterford, Mich. pleaded guilty to having sex with the biological son she gave up for adoption but tracked down on Facebook.
Maybe that'll teach her.
A Michigan mom who pleaded guilty to having sex with her 14-year-old biological son she gave up for adoption and later found on the Internet, will face at least nine years behind bars, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Aimee L. Sword, 36, of Waterford, apologized at her sentencing on Monday in Oakland County Circuit Court on Monday. The former Macy's makeup clerk could face up to 30 years in jail.
Sword tracked her teenage son, who is now 16, on Facebook in 2008 after she didn't receive an annual update from the boy's adoptive family in Grand Rapids.
"When she saw this boy, something just touched off in her—and it wasn't a mother-son relationship, it was a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship," Sword's attorney, Mitchell Ribitwer, said to the newspaper.
Sword said she only has sex with her son once. But authorities said there were several incidents, including at a Grand Rapids hotel and at her home.
At the time, Sword was married and lived with her husband and five children who ranged from toddlers to teens.
The boy's adoptive parents—not knowing about any sexual misconduct-- gave him permission to stay with Sword. He later alerted a counselor to the incident.
"Aimee's searching for a reason why this happened. She can't understand it," Ribitwer said.
