Aimee Louise Sword saga: Why would a mother have sex with her son?
As word spread this week that Aimee L. Sword had been sentenced to 30 years in prison for tracking down and having sex with the 14-year-old son she gave up for adoption, her name rocketed to the top of Google's list of most-searched terms. The frenzy was no doubt fueled in part by people's desire to understand why on earth a birth mother would seek out her biological son and then sleep with him.
Sword, it seems, is asking herself the very same question. Her lawyer recently told the press: "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."
