A TWISTED live-in nanny who gave birth to an 11-year-old’s baby has been caged for 20 years for sexual battery.
Marissa Mowry, 28, sexually assaulted the boy at least 15 times while living in his family’s home in Florida.
In October 2014, she gave birth to the youngster’s son but his unsuspecting parents had no idea their boy was the dad.
At the time, Mowry was 22 and her victim aged just 11.
They carried on having sex “multiple times” until he was 14, Hillsborough County Courthouse was told.
Now 17, the boy is doing his best to be a dad while finishing high school, say reports from the US.
He appeared at the sentencing on Thursday with his and Mowry’s five-year-old child.
“I thought of her almost as a second daughter,” his mother told reporters after sentencing.
“To think (she thought) of my son as more than a child?…I mean, we’re talking about a child who was 11.”
Mowry was hired as a live-in nanny on the recommendation of a family member.
She claimed he had forced himself on her but cops got to the truth in a taped phone call with the lad.
She was arrested in 2017 outside Busch Gardens theme park in Tampa where she worked as a waitress.
Mowry was initially facing life in prison before she struck a plea deal. She will also have to register as a sex offender when she is released from jail.
The boy’s mother said after he arrest: “She betrayed me in the worst possible way. I was always watching when I was home. It was when I was at work I couldn’t.
“How could I have been so stupid? There should have been something I should have caught. I should have caught something.
