Oklahoma Daughter Sentenced After Admitting to Marrying Her Mom
Nov 12 2017
Misty Spann married her mother, Patricia Ann Spann, on 25 March 2015.
Misty Velvet Dawn Spann, 26, was scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday for a bench trial but ended up pleading guilty and admitting to marrying her mother, 44-year-old Patricia Ann Spann, the Tulsa World reports. A district judge ordered that two of those years must be served under the supervision of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. The mother reportedly told authorities that she and Misty "hit it off". The marriage was annulled in 2010 due to "incest", The Associated Press reported.
Patricia Spann is set to appear in court in January.
Detectives subsequently learned Patricia had also married her son in 2008.
There's a scientific explanation for why couples like Patricia and Misty Spann get together, despite being related as mother and daughter.
Patricia and Misty's marriage was also annulled last month at the behest of Misty, who said she was induced "by fraud to enter the marriage".
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.
One woman who said she knew Misty in high school was baffled by the unconventional relationship that shook up Duncan, notes KFOR.
It is punishable by up to 10 years in prison. In the complaint, Misty stated that her mother "consulted with three separate attorneys who advised there would be no problem with the marriage". For you to want to put your own daughter through this, what kind of person are you? "When I went to school with her, she had a girlfriend, and they both worked at Sonic".
