A Waterford mother will spend at least nine years in prison for having sex with the 14-year-old son she gave up for adoption when he was a few days old. Aimee L. Sword, 36, apologized for her actions at her sentencing Monday in Oakland County Circuit Court, said her attorney Mitchell Ribitwer.
Sword received yearly updates and pictures from the boy's adoptive family in Grand Rapids. But when she didn't get a picture when the boy turned 14, she contacted him online through a social networking site. The boy knew Sword was his mother. "When she saw this boy, something just touched off in her. It wasn't a mother-son relationship, it was a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship.
After the teen got into trouble in Grand Rapids, his adoptive mother, not knowing about the relationship, agreed to allow him to stay with Sword in Waterford. Married at the time, Sword shared her home with her husband and five other children. But after he returned to Grand Rapids, he talked about the incidents to a counselor, who reported them to police.
