Aimee L. Sword of Waterford, Michigan got a 9-30 year jail sentence for having sex with her biological son. The boy was 14 years old at the time.
According to MSNBC, Aimee L. Sword gave her baby boy up for adoption when he was just a few days old. In 2008 she searched for and found her son up, using the social networking site Facebook to track him down.
The Detroit Free Press published the following statement made by Aimee Sword's lawyer, Mitchell Ribitwer.
"When she saw this boy, something just touched off in her â€” and it wasn't a mother-son relationship, it was a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship," the attorney said. "Aimee's searching for a reason why this happened. She can't understand it. She's going to get some counseling."
Aimee Sword always used to receive photos of her son every year from his adoptive parents. When she didn't get one the year he turned 14, she started trying to find him. According to her attorney, the boy knew that Sword was his biological mother.
When Aimee Sword's son found himself in some trouble with the law, his adoptive mother agreed that he could go and stay with his biological mother and her family for a while. Sword was married at the time, and there were five additional children also living in the home. They ranged in age from toddlers to children in their late teens. It was while living with Sword that she and the boy had sexual relations. This occurred both in a hotel in Grand Rapids and in various homes in Waterford.
After Sword's son returned home to Grand Rapids he confided to a counselor about the sex, and the counselor contacted the authorities.
There is something seriously lacking in a mother's mind, heart and soul to even consider having sex with her biological son; let alone anyone who is only 14 years of age. I can't begin to imagine what possessed her to do such a thing, and why...after committing such a heinous act even once, didn't she stop and separate herself from the boy?
Our society is becoming sick with an obsession about sex with children. Teachers have sex with young students and now a mother has sex with her biological son. Do you think this has always taken place and we only hear about it more frequently because of the media presence in our world?
