SEATTLE: Woman accused of sex with adult son

A Kirkland woman accused of having sex with an adult son she had given up for adoption as a baby has been charged with incest.

The Seattle Times reported that the charge was filed earlier this month against the 54-year-old woman in King County Superior Court.

The 33-year-old man told a sheriff’s detective in May that he had had a two-year sexual relationship with the woman beginning in 2004 after he tracked her down through an adoption agency.

The woman was briefly jailed Tuesday, then released. If convicted, she could face a year in prison and be required to register as a sex offender.
