Nice, CA – The California woman charged with having sex with her teenage son has pleaded no contest to incest and other felonies.
Earlier this month we reported on 32-year-old Mistie Atkinson, the woman who was caught having sex with her biological, teenage son. She was arrested and charged with incest, oral copulation of a minor, contact with a minor for a sexual offense and sending harmful matter to a minor after police found her in a hotel room with her son.
Atkinson has not had contact with her 16-year-old son since she gave him up 14 years ago, but the pair reunited in a most devious way late last year after Atkinson contacted him via Facebook.
Within two months the teen’s father, who has sole custody, filed a restraining order against Atkinson after the conversations between her and her son became as increasingly inappropriate as they were sinister.
“She started to have a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship with him, not a mother-and-son relationship,” the man said, according to court documents. “It got to a point where their conversation began talking about harming me and killing off her boyfriend she was (now) living with.”
Police say they have proof Atkinson sent her son nude photos of herself and engaged in explicit conversations that included the two running away together. Even more damning are the videos police recovered from the teen’s cell phone that show Atkinson blowing her son’s horn as well as the two engaging in sexual intercourse.
Mistie Atkinson initially pleaded not guilty to the charges, but showed some signs of intelligence by ultimately striking a deal with prosecutors. By her pleading guilty, she is looking at four years and eight months in prison. If she keeps her nose clean while incarcerated, she could be released in half that time.
She did much better than the Michigan woman we reported on who allowed her son to deposit her own DNA back inside her. Aimee Sword, 35, was also charged with having a sexual relationship with her biological son she had given up. Like Atkinson, she began a sexual relationship with the boy after they reconnected via the Internet. Unlike Atkinson, Sword ended up getting a 9 to 30 year prison sentence.
