A woman in Washington state accused of having sex with an adult son she had given up for adoption as a baby has been charged with incest.

The 33-year-old man told a sheriff's detective in May that he had a two-year sexual relationship with the woman beginning in 2004 after he tracked her down through an adoption agency.

The Seattle Times reports the incest charge was filed earlier this month against the 54-year-old Kirkland woman in King County Superior Court.

The woman was briefly jailed on Tuesday, then released. If convicted, she could face a year in prison and be required to register as a sex offender.
