A mother in an incestuous relationship with her son has gone into hiding after police said she could face 15 years in jail.
52-year-old Kim West revealed how she was having ‘incredible’ and ‘mind-blowing’ sex with her son, Ben Ford, 32, after they met 2 years ago following 30 years apart.
The English-born mum gave birth to her son when she was 19 after becoming pregnant while studying in California, and was forced to give him up for adoption.
Ben has left his wife, Victoria, and moved in with his mother as they plan to get married and start a family in Michigan.
The pair have now had to lay low as US authorities became aware of the incest couple after they spoke out about their loving relationship and how they plan to have a baby together.
US police would be duty bound to investigate if a member of the public made a complaint about them.
Consensual incestuous relationships between adults are can land you up to 15 years in prison under Michigan law as criminal sexual conduct in the third degree is committed when ‘the other person is related to the accused by blood or affinity to the third degree,’ under the State’s legislation.
Kim West could face up to 15 years in jail for the incestuous relationship.
A Michigan State police spokeswoman told the Mirror: ‘Under State law incest between two consenting adult is a third degree felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.’
‘Anyone convicted of such an offence would also be required to sign the sex offenders register for life.’
However, she was ‘not aware’ of any complaint about the couple.
The couple insist their relationship is not incest, but ‘Genetic Sexual Attraction’ – sexual attraction between close relatives, such as sibling, cousins, and even parents and offspring, who first meet as adults.
Kim said about the relationship: ‘This is not incest, it is GSA. We are like peas in a pod and are meant to be together.’
‘I know people will say we’re disgusting, that we should be able to control our feelings, but when you’re hit by a love so consuming you are willing to give up everything for it, you have to fight for it.’
‘It’s a once in a lifetime chance and something Ben and I are not willing to walk away from.’
The mother and son were reunited once again after 30 years apart
Ben added: ‘When I met Kim, I couldn’t think of her as my mum but instead as a sexual being.’
‘I had seen a therapist at an adoption support group and had learnt about the GSA phenomenon.’
The mum and son couple are ready to leave Michigan to avoid arrest, but there options would be limited as only two states in the United States allow adult incest.
New Jersey law imposes no criminal penalties for incest where both parties are adults and Rhode Island repealed its criminal incest statute in 1989.
