A nanny who raped an 11 year-old boy and had his baby has been jailed for 20 years.
Marissa Mowry, 28, was handed the sentence after admitting sexual battery over the 2014 sex attacks.
They saw her rape the boy at least 15 times over several months.
Mowry, of Hillsborough County in Florida, later gave birth to a son. Her victim – who Metro US has chosen not to name – is now 17 years-old and trying his best to raise the five year-old child with his parent’s help.
Speaking after Mowry’s sentencing, her victim’s mother Nadean Campbell told the Tampa Bay Times : ‘We’re talking about a child that was 11. Not even a teenager. Eleven.’ ‘I thought of her almost as a second daughter.’
Campbell also expressed incredulity at Mowry’s excuse that the youngster was mature beyond his years.
She said: ‘To think of my son as more than a child? ‘I mean, we’re talking about a child who was 11.’
Campbell explained that her son takes his son to school in the morning, before going to school himself, then plays with him in the backyard after he gets home. The youngster can no longer hang out with friends after school, because he is too busy with his child.
