Woman Goes To Jail For Sleeping With The Teenage Son She Gave Up At Birth

Detroit’s Aimee L. Sword has been sentenced to nine to 30 years in prison for having sex with her 14-year-old son, who she gave up for adoption when he was an infant. The 36-year-old Sword was married with five other kids when she tracked down her teenage son on Facebook. And, uh, started meeting him in hotel rooms for trysts. The boy eventually brought it up to a counselor, who told the police. The prosecutor said he was “concerned for this young boy and what it may have done to his psyche and his future.” Meanwhile Sword’s attorney told the press, “When she saw this boy, it wasn’t a mother-son relationship, it was a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship. Aimee’s searching for a reason why this happened. She can’t understand it. She’s going to get some counseling.” Uh, is there really any way this kid won’t be irreparably messed up by this? If you met a guy who told you he’d lost his virginity to his mother, would that be a dealbreaker? Did Sword tell him she was his mom? And what’s going to happen when she gets out of jail? Her whole family must be in shambles! Maybe this is how Facebook will finally ruin us? I’m pretty sure God is sending over some plagues right now. I wonder if they’ll be computer viruses this time?
