Daughter who married own mother pleads guilty to incest

Daughter who married own mother pleads guilty to incest

She was sentenced to 10 years of probation and ordered to get counseling, according to The Oklahoman.

Court records show 26-year-old Misty Spann of Duncan pleaded guilty Tuesday in Stephens County District Court.

This week, Misty pleaded guilty to incest and received a 10-year deferred sentence.

Patricia Spann insisted to investigators she didn't have contact with her kids until a few years ago.

Detectives subsequently learned Patricia had also married her son in 2008.

The marriage was annulled last month after a judge concluded the mother had induced her daughter "by fraud to enter the marriage".

Mother Spann allegedly told cops she didn't think the twosome broke any laws - because she was no longer listed as a parent on Misty's birth certificate.

The US was home to "the main companies that order and pay for television rights, the main sponsors and advertisers", he said. This was declared by presidential assistant Yuri Ushakov to Russian agencies.

She also once married her son Cody, who claims both he and his sister were manipulated by Patricia Ann. That marriage was annulled in 2010.

She said her mother told her she had received legal advice indicating their marriage was legal.

The marriage between the mother-daughter duo came to light only recently during an inquiry by a state Department of Human Services child welfare investigator.

After Misty was convinced, the pair married in March past year in Oklahoma.

In Oklahoma, incest is a felony, and if convicted, is punishable up to 10 years in prison. She was scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday for a bench trial but admitted to marrying her mother. "She forced my sister into this, there's a lot of people that know it", he told KWSO. Patricia told officers about her history with her children as well as her current relationship, not realising what she was saying was incriminating.

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

Under Oklahoma law, marrying a close relative is considered incest whether or not the relationship is sexual. Was she an adult? She never acted on her feelings. The Spann children were raised by their paternal grandmother.
