A nanny who raped an 11 year-old boy and had his child has been jailed for 20 years.
The former nanny employed by a family that lives in Florida when she was 22, received the jail sentence on Wednesday October 16, after reaching a plea deal with prosecutors. The boy Mowry raped at least 15 times over several months is now 17-years-old and trying his best to raise the five year-old child she gave birth to in 2014.
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.
He did not report what had happened to him until 2017, at which point Mowry was arrested.
“I thought of her almost as a second daughter. I mean, we’re talking about a child who was 11” the victim’s mother, Nadean Campbell said after the sentence, according to Spectrum Bay News 9.
Campbell who initially thought the baby’s father was Mowry’s boyfriend, got to know about the sexual abuse after her son came forward. A DNA test on the baby backed his claim.
She further disclosed 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 altered course of Campbell son’s life has left him with no friends as he’s always busy with his son and it has also affected his dating life, as no one will want to date a 17-year-old with a 5-year-old child.
It was further learnt that Mowry who was facing a life sentence before the plea deal with prosecutors tried to blame her victim, claiming he forced himself on her. She was eventually caught lying after police secretly recorded a phone conversation between her and her victim.
