A Florida woman has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for sexual battery, after getting pregnant for an 11-year-old boy and giving birth to his baby.
Marissa Mowry, 28, plead guilty to the crime and her fate was handed down in Hillsborough County Courthouse on Wednesday.
Mowry was working as the boy’s live-in nanny when she had sex with him in January 2014.
At the time, she was 22 and the victim was aged 11.
In October of that year, Mowry gave birth to the boy’s son – but his unsuspecting parents had no idea.
They believed Mowry’s boyfriend was the father of the child, and she stayed working at the family home.
Mowry abused the boy at least 15 times over the course of several months, according to WFLA.
He did not report what had happened to him until 2017, at which point Mowry was arrested.
The victim – who is now aged 17 – appeared at the sentencing with his and Mowry’s five-year-old child.
The boy now cares for his 5-year-old son himself, his mother said, taking the toddler to school before starting his own day of classes. But being a father has limited his social and dating life, Campbell said
Mowry was initially facing life in prison before she struck a plea deal. She will also have to register as a sex offender when she is released from jail.
