Mom feels 'betrayed' by nanny who had 11-year-old's baby

- She was the 22-year-old nanny who, detectives say, molested an 11-year-old boy and even became pregnant with his child.  Now that alleged victim’s mother is raising her son and his baby, too.

“She betrayed me in the worst possible way," complained the mother, whom we’ll call "Anne."

Anne says Marissa Mowry was the family’s live-in nanny for years. 

"I was always watching when I was home,” Anne recalled.  “It was when I was at work I couldn't.”

That’s when Mowry molested the boy, investigators say.

When she got pregnant, she said the father was an ex-boyfriend.  Anne never questioned it.

"How could I have been so stupid?” she continued.  “There should have been something I should have caught.  I should have caught something, "

She says it wasn’t until this year that her son spilled his secret.

"Just being a teenager is hard enough and you’re gonna throw in molestation -- which messes with their head -- and then you’re going to throw in being a parent?" said Anne.

Now, Anne is raising her now-15-year-old son and his 3-year-old child.  She knows the sweet little boy will likely grow up without a mother; Mowry is now sitting in jail facing 15 counts of sexual battery.
Anne says that’s the way it has to be.

"She needs to be locked up for life.  Because that’s is what she's stolen from my son,” explained Anne. “She took it from her own son too.”
