Oklahoma Woman Accused Of Marrying Her Mother Receives Deferred Sentence

Patricia and Misty's relationship was discovered by the Department of Human Services last year during a child welfare investigation inside their home in Duncan

Patricia Spann told the welfare worker she lost contact with her three kids for years after their paternal grandmother was granted custody, according to court records obtained by The Lawton Constitution.

A Duncan woman who married her biological mother last year received a 10-year deferred sentence Tuesday after pleading guilty in Stephens County to committing incest.

Misty Velvet Dawn Spann was set for a jury trial, but instead pleaded guilty in exchange for 10 years probation, according to Tulsa World.

Taking a plea deal to avoid 10 years in prison, Misty has been ordered to do 10 years on probation and seek counselling.

But in 2014 she hit it off with Patricia Spann, 44, and spoke about adopting a child together.

In March 2016, the mother-daughter duo took their taboo relationship to the next level and got hitched, according to a marriage license application. That marriage was annulled in 2010 after the son described it as incestuous.

Patricia has pleaded not guilty to the charge, but has not yet appeared in court yet. She was also once married to her son, who had the marriage annulled after claiming incest.

Incest in the U.S. state of Oklahoma is a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Patricia genuinely thought she wasn't doing anything wrong because she wasn't legally Misty's mum and had been removed from her daughter's birth certificate.

Stephens County court records show that the mother-daughter marriage was annulled October 12, six weeks after Misty Spann filed a petition asking for an annulment "by reason of illegality and fraud".

The daughter said that her mother had convinced her at the time by saying that their marriage would be considered legal.

"I think she's worthless she put my sister into this".

Under Oklahoma law, it's illegal to marry a close relative even if the relationship isn't sexual.

She wrote a book about the lust she felt for the adult son she had given up for adoption 26 years earlier.
