Amy L. Sword: Guilty Of Sex with Biological Son
Amy L. Sword will get between 9 and 30 years in prison for having sex with her biological son, according to the Detroit Free Press. She gave up the boy for adoption when he was born, and then decided to track him down on the Internet in 2008. At the time, he was 14. It was later revealed that the two were having a sexual relationship.

Apparently the boy's adoptive parents sent Amy, 36, pictures and updates about her son as he grew up, and when she didn't receive information when he turned 14, she decided to track him down via Facebook. Upon meeting, the two began a sexual relationship that authorities say started in a Grand Rapids hotel room and continued at homes in Waterford in 2008.
Amy apologized to the court after pleading guilty to the charges in Michigan Monday. "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," said her lawyer, who added that Sword said she was sexually and physically abused as a child. "Aimee's searching for a reason why this happened. She can't understand it. She's going to get some counseling."
