(Newser) – A Detroit area woman was sentenced to 9 to 30 years in prison for having sex with the 14-year-old son she gave up for adoption as an infant. Aimee L. Sword, 36, tracked down the boy on Facebook and the two soon had sex in a hotel room and area homes. “When she saw this boy, it wasn’t a mother-son relationship, it was a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship,” her attorney 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.”

Sword apologized in court. She was married at the time with 5 children. The boy eventually discussed the sex with a counselor, who alerted police. The prosecutor called it a "very tragic case," and said he was "concerned for this young boy and what it may have done to his psyche and his future."

i hope ur open-mindedness accepts this women too and pedophiles bec according to you they were expressing their love in their own way just like gays.ur the kind of person who keeps their mind so open that any sort of crap can enter. so if this women comes to ur house to convince you what she did wasnt wrong, open-minded freaks as urself supporting such sexual perversions as homosexuality would find no problem in accepting her. poor u with ur pathetic delusions thinking sexual perversion is something to be proud of, then u and the mother have a lot in common. If ur so accepting of peoples sexual choices then u wouldnt mind a pedophile like her living down the block occasionaly eyeing ur children, why not because ur accepting like that. I hope u enjoy ur perverse open-mindedness of a garbage can when people with sexual deviances moves next door to u! But u dont blame people like that do u? I tend to warn my children agaisnt manipulative perverts like u especially with narcissist personality disorders, they tend to be violent.
