A Florida 28-year-old woman was sentenced to 20 years in prison for abusing an 11-year-old boy and giving birth to his child.
Marissa Mowry, 28, was a 22-year-old live-in nanny when she secretly abused the boy at least 15 times over several months. In the fall of 2014, she gave birth to his child, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
In 2017, after the boy had told his mother Nadean Campbell what happened, she told the authorities. A DNA test later confirmed that the boy was the father of Mowry’s child, prosecutors said.
Now, five years later, on Wednesday, Oct. 16, the now 17-year-old father watched in the courtroom as Mowry was sentenced for her cruel actions. Mowry will have to complete 10 years of sex offender probation upon her release from prison.
Campbell said the child her son once was the memories of a boy in a kiddie pool, riding dirt bikes, playing with LEGO blocks, but he is now, a teenage father with a 5-year-old son.
The 17-year-old takes his son to school in the morning, and goes to school himself. He plays with him in their backyard when he gets home.
“It cost him his childhood. He’s not going to know teen years like a regular teenager,” Campbell told Fox13. “Who wants to date a 17-year-old that has a 5-year-old?”
The mother also warned other parents to be vigilant with their own children. She said, “We don’t think about females being predators usually. ‘I didn’t. And it cost me.”
