Woman Gets 10 Years' Probation for Marrying Her Biological Mother

Her mother, 44-year-old Patricia Spann, has pleaded not guilty to incest.

An Oklahoma woman was sentenced on Tuesday after pleading guilty to incest for marrying her biological mother a year ago.

Patricia Spann is set to appear in court in January. The guilt she admitted.

Two years of Misty's deferred sentence of 10 years must be under the supervision of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, the outlet reports.

A woman has been found guilty of incest after marrying her mother.

Authorities say a state Department of Human Services child welfare investigator discovered information which led them to believe Misty and Patricia Spann were actually involved in an incestuous relationship.

Misty said at the time that her mother told her she had received legal advice indicating that their marriage was legal.


Patricia told authorities that she allegedly "looked into" wedding her daughter and determined, erroneously, that marrying Misty would not violate the law because her name was not on an amended birth certificate created when she lost custody of her children. This marriage was annulled 15 months later because of 'incest'.

"I think she's worthless she put my sister into this". The incest charge against the mother is still pending. She also said that after their reunion, she and Misty "hit it off".

"For you to want to put your own daughter through this, what kind of person are you?"

Misty Spann also set out to dissolve her and her mother's marriage, filing for an annulment "by reason of illegality and fraud" on September 1, according to online court records.

"If that's what you want that's on you, but none of us kids want that".

Genetic Sexual Attraction (GSA) is a term that describes the phenomenon of sexual attraction between close relatives, such as siblings, first and second cousins or a parent and offspring who first meet as adults. The Spann children were raised by their paternal grandmother.
