DETROIT (CBS) When Aimee Louise Sword, a central Michigan woman, used the Internet to locate a son she gave up for adoption over a decade ago, few could imagine that the reunion of the two could lead to anything sinister.
But police allege exactly that, saying that Sword, 35, seduced her long-lost biological son and had sex with the teenage boy sometime after they were reunited.
Sword's lawyer, Kenneth Burch, has defended his client against these troubling charges.
She maintains her "presumption of innocence," he told local Michigan news site mlive.com. The accusations "have been very difficult for her," he said.
Sword has been charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct in the case.
Waterford Township police say that Sword was arrested on April 24th after their detectives were informed of the sex abuse accusations by Child Protective Services, reports
She remains free on bail.
Due to the boy's age and nature of the case, CBS will not release further details on him.
On Sword's MySpace page, she quotes rap artist Lil' Kim. "She rises during the worst of obstacles," she wrote in August and noted the quote, "Reminded me of myself."
