Woman Who Married Her Biological Mother Sentenced In Tulsa

An Oklahoma woman who married her biological mother was sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to committing incest, officials said.

Defendant, from Duncan, was set to trial, but instead pleaded guilty instead for her nuptials to her own mum Patricial Ann Spann.

In addition to spending 10 years on probation, the judge also ordered her to undergo counseling and pay various court fees.

Spann married her mother, Patricia Ann Spann, last year.

Misty Spann, 26, married her biological mother, who was formerly named Patricia Ann Clayton, in March 2016.

The marriage was annulled on October 12 after Mistry filed an annulment "by reason of illegality and fraud".

The document indicates that Patricia Spann "had looked into" marrying her daughter and determined that she could because her name no longer appeared on Misty Spann's birth certificate.

It gets weirder. One of Patricia's other sons claims that she tried being inappropriate with him. She was also once married to her son, who had the marriage annulled after claiming incest.

She says she only consented to getting married after her mother convinced her it was legally OK, saying she consulted three attorneys.

In Oklahoma, incest is a felony, and, if convicted, is punishable up to 10 years in prison.

Her case the court will consider in January next year.

Her mom told authorities that the pair reconnected in 2014 and "hit it off".

An Oklahoma Department of Human Services child welfare investigator gathered information that led her to believe that the relationship between the two was incestuous.

"I think she's just a sick, twisted individual that has something messed up in her head", Cody, 25, told PEOPLE last September.

Patricia reportedly told investigators that she immediately "hit it off" with her daughter after their reunion, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by People magazine previous year.

"The daughter knew for a fact" she was marrying her own mother, a police spokesperson told People previous year while the investigation was ongoing.

Under Oklahoma law, marrying a close relative is considered incest whether or not the relationship is sexual.
