Aimee L. Sword, Who Slept With Her Teenaged Son, Shares Similarities With Bruce McMahan

Like McMahan, Aimee L. Sword had spent several years away from her son, who had been adopted by another family, according to the Detroit Free Press. Sword was supposed to get yearly updates on her son, and when she didn't get one after his 14th birthday, she contacted him online. They began a sexual relationship that continued until the boy told a
counselor about it.

Unlike the Michigan case, McMahan hasn't been charged with a crime. But then, Schutt was old enough to consent to the relationship, while Sword's son was just 14.
And instead of jail, McMahan has tried to repair his image with two websites here and here that boast of his charitable work. They describe him as a family man who's set an example for his children. The section titled "David Bruce McMahan's Children" boasts: "McMahan has set an example that his children make an effort to emulate."
