PONTIAC, Mich., Sept. 12 (UPI) -- A 35-year-old Michigan woman had sex with her teenage son she had given up for adoption years earlier, authorities allege.

The Oakland Press in Pontiac reported Thursday that police charged Aimee Louise Sword of Waterford Township with third-degree sexual assault over her alleged sexual relationship with her son, whose specific age and identity were not reported.

Authorities allege more than 10 years after she gave her son up for adoption, Sword found the teenager through the Internet and their incestuous relationship began.

Specific details regarding the relationship were not reported.

Attorney Kenneth Burch, who is representing Sword, said his client maintains she is innocent.

The Oakland Press said Sword is free on an unspecified bond and two of the three third-degree sexual assaults counts against her were dropped after she declined a preliminary examination in her case.
