According to an article in The Oakland Press, a Waterford Township woman who has been accused of sexually assaulting the now teenage son she gave up for adoption years ago has failed to appear in court.
Aimee Louise Sword was scheduled to appear at a preliminary examination last week, but never showed up. Sword's attorney, Kenneth Burch, told the judge that Sword said she was sick with a fever, but that he did not know where she was or if that was the reason she failed to appear in court.
Judge Phyllis McMillen of the 51st District Court rescheduled the exam for January 13th, and also plans to address Sword's absence at that time.
Sword was arrested and charged with three counts of first-degree criminal sexual misconduct after she tracked down her biological son on the Internet, who is now a teenager, and had sex with him.
