A Florida nanny has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for sexually abusing an 11-year-old boy, later giving birth to his child, PEOPLE confirms.
Marissa Mowry was 22 years old when she was hired to watch the child in January 2014. She soon began to have sexual contact with him. According to court testimony, Mowry repeatedly sexually abused him without using protection. In the fall of 2014, she gave birth to the victim’s child, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
In 2017, the boy told his mother about the abuse. She contacted police, who conducted a DNA test which proved that the boy was the father of Mowry’s child, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
In September, Mowry pleaded guilty to multiple counts of sexual battery on a victim under the age of 12, according to WTVT.
On Wednesday, a judge sentenced her to 20 years in prison. After her release, she must complete 10 years of sex offender probation. She will be added to Florida’s sex offender registry, Bay News 9 reports.
