The 36 year-old Michigan mom, Aimee Louise Sword, who was married and lived with her husband and five children, pleaded guilty to having sex with a 14 year-old boy, who is her own biological son she gave up for adoption. Aimee L. Sword faces nine to thirty years in jail.
“When she saw this boy, something just touched off in herâ€”and it wasn’t a mother-son relationship, it was a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship,” Sword’s attorney, Mitchell Ribitwer, said. “Aimee’s searching for a reason why this happened. She can’t understand it.”
Aimee found her teen son, who is no 16 years old, on the Internet via Facebook back in 2008 after she missed an annual update from his adoptive family in Grand Rapids. The adoptive parents even gave the boy permission to stay with his biological mother at the Grand Rapids hotel and at her home since they did not know what was going on between.
The mother claims she only had sex with her son once and apologized during her sentence in Oakland County Circuit Court on Monday (July 12). Aimeeâ€™s secret was revealed during a conversation her son had with a counselor.
