Melbourne, July 13 (ANI): A Michigan woman has been sentenced to 9 years in jail for having sex with her 14-year-old son.
Aimee Louise Sword, 36, from Waterford Township, had given up the boy for adoption when he was a few days old.
She also received an update from his adoptive family, including a photograph, each year but not when he turned 14 in 2008.
Sword tracked him down through a social networking website, the Oakland County Circuit Court heard.
"When she saw this boy, something just touched off in her - and it wasn't a mother-son relationship, it was a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship," The Australian quoted her lawyer Mitchell Ribitwer as saying.
"Aimee's searching for a reason why this happened. She can't understand it. She's going to get some counselling."
Sword was originally charged with four counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, but pleaded guilty to having sex with the boy once.
"It's the first time I've really seen something like that between a mother-son. But I have seen it unfortunately many times between a father-daughter."
Judge Daniel O'Brien sentenced Sword to between nine and 30 years in prison. (ANI)
