Incest Mom Aimee Sword Gets Eight Years in Prison

| by MomLogic

36-year-old Aimee L. Sword -- who was named one of the Worst Mothers of 2009 by momlogic -- has been sentenced to eight to thirty years in prison for having sex with her own son.

Sword gave up her son for adoption when he was a few days old. She received yearly updates and pictures from the boy's family.

When he was 14, Aimee (then a mother of five) contacted him through Facebook and started a sexual relationship with him.

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

"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 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."

She certainly needs it. Our heart goes out to this innocent boy. How could a mother do such a thing? It seriously boggles the mind.
