A Michigan woman has been sentenced to nine to 30 years in prison for having sex with her biological son, whom she had given up for adoption and later tracked down on Facebook. He was 14 at the time.
Aimee L. Sword, a 36-year-old who lives in a suburb outside of Detroit, plead guilty to having sex with the boy once, even though they had relations multiple times. Sword, who worked at a department store makeup counter, used to get yearly updates and pictures of her son from his adoptive parents. When she didn't get one for his 14th birthday, she did some investigative work on Facebook and tracked down her son (now 16) and started a relationship with him in 2008, which soon turned sexual. After getting in trouble in his hometown, his adoptive mother even let the boy live with Sword, her husband, and five other children for a period of time.
Sword's lawyer told the Detroit Free Press, "Aimee's searching for a reason why this happened. She can't understand it. She's going to get some counseling."
You fucking think she's going to get counseling? She had sex with her son! And speaking of counseling, it's amazing that this woman managed to royally fuck up her son for life even after she gave him up for adoption to presumably avoid just that. We just hope his high school English teacher saves him the embarrassment of having to read Oedipus Rex anytime soon.
