Aimee L. Sword had sex with her biological 14 year old son, and will now face at least 9 years behind bars. Sword had given her son up for adoption, then found him years later on the internet. Sword could face up to 30 years in prison.
Sword, 36, found her son, who is now 16, on Facebook in 2008.
“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,” said Sword’s attorney, Mitchell Ribitwer.
According to the New York Daily News, Sword claims that she only had sex with her son once, but authorities say there were many encounters. The boys adoptive parents even agreed to let him stay with Sword, who was married with 5 children, before they were aware of the sexual misconduct.
There are many stories about older women having sex with underage kids, mostly teachers and students, but this is the first case I’ve heard of involving a mother and son.
