According to the mother, the incident happened because the two had gotten closer over the past few months, and one thing led to another when they started kissing.

The mother and son were charged with the crime of incest and Fitchburg police issued them a summons to appear at the District Court on August 20, according to Mass Live. The charge is seen as a felony.
