Woman Gets 10 Years' Probation for Marrying Her Biological Mother

Woman Gets 10 Years' Probation for Marrying Her Biological Mother

A woman who married her own mother after they "hit it off" has pleaded guilty to incest.

Authorities uncovered their relationship during a child welfare investigation five months later.

District Judge Ken Graham gave Misty Spann a deferred sentence of 10 years, at least two of which must be under the supervision of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, court minutes show.

Patricia Spann told the investigator that she lost custody of Misty Spann and her other two children but reconnected with them in 2014.

An Oklahoma Department of Human Services child welfare investigator discovered information that led her to believe that Misty and Patricia Spann's relationship was incestuous, according to Tulsa World.

Misty's brother, Cody Spann, said: "I think she's worthless she put my sister into this".

She married one of her sons in 2008 according to reports.

Patricia has pleaded not guilty to the charge, but has not yet appeared in court yet.

She says she only consented to getting married after her mother convinced her it was legally OK, saying she consulted three attorneys. Her probation is the type known as a deferred sentence. The marriage was annulled 15 months later after the son said it was incestuous. "If that's what you want that's on you, but none of us kids want that, and now you got my sister behind bars because of your choices, why don't you let that sit on you as a mom'".

Misty also annulled her marriage with her mum, putting down "illegality and fraud" in the reasons box.

Shockingly, this is not the first time Patrica Spann has done this.

She "had looked into" marrying her daughter and wrongly determined she it was allowed because her name no longer appears on Misty's birth certificate, the document added. Patricia has pleaded not guilty to incest, and her case has been delayed until January. The Spann children were raised by their paternal grandmother.
