Napa, CA (The Weekly Vice) - Mistie Atkinson, a 32-year-old California woman was jailed after she allegedly engaged in a sexual relationship with her 16-year-old biological son.
According to Napa police, Atkinson was arrested after police found her and her 16-year-old son in a motel room in Ukiah, California.
Investigators say Atkinson, who has no custody rights to the boy, began sending nude photographs of herself to him some time after December, 22, 2011. The two reportedly exchanged sexually explicit messages and discussed the idea of running away together.
Detectives also discovered videos on the boy's cell phone that allegedly showed Atkinson performing oral sex on the boy and engaging in sexual intercourse with him.
"Atkinson and the victim are aware they are biological mother and son," investigators wrote in an arrest affidavit.
The boy's father, who has sole custody, has obtained a restraining order against Atkinson, according to court records.
Atkinson was booked into the Napa County Jail and charged with incest, oral copulation of a minor, contact with a minor for a sexual offense and sending harmful matter to a minor. Her bail was set at $200,000 and her next court appearance has been scheduled for May 10.
We reported on a similar story back in 2009 that involved another estranged mother that wandered back into her son's life and then began a sexual relationship with him.
Aimee Louise Sword, of Waterford Michigan was jailed after she used the Internet to track down a son she had given up for adoption when he was a toddler. The pair began a sexual relationship that reportedly went on for several months before the boy's legal guardians found out.
Sword pleaded guilty to third-degree sexual assault and was sentenced to a minimum of 9 years in prison.
At her hearing, she apologized to the court and her children, explaining that she didn't understand why she had behaved in such manner and would seek counseling.
