Woman marries mum, pleads guilty to committing incest

An Oklahoma woman who married her biological mother has pleaded guilty to incest.

Court records show that Misty was due to sit for a bench trial but instead pleaded guilty.

Misty Velvet Dawn Spann, of Duncan, Oklahoma, must also seek counseling and pay thousands of dollars in fines, court costs and other fees per her plea agreement, reports News OK.

The publication notes that the 26-year-old misty Spann received maximum period provided by law for accused of incest.

Incidentally Patricia lost the custody of her daughter and two sons when they were children, according to reports.

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.

Patricia says she actually did the research herself, and thought that it would be OK since she no longer has the same name as what was printed on Misty's birth certificate.

The DHS worker said Patricia Spann never reported that she had married her biological son in Comanche County in 2008.

Their marriage didn't come to light until a Oklahoma Department of Human Services child welfare investigator did an inquiry that led her to believe that the couple was having an incestuous relationship, according to Tulsa World.

One woman who said she knew Misty in high school was baffled by the unconventional relationship that shook up Duncan, notes KFOR.

When she reconnected with Misty Spann, they "hit it off", Patricia Spann allegedly told the welfare worker. "When I went to school with her, she had a girlfriend, and they both worked at Sonic". For you to want to put your own daughter through this, what kind of person are you? They married in March 2016 in Comanche County, Oklahoma. "My brother ... said that he wanted to get away from her - that was not what he wanted". She is identified as Patricia Ann Clayton on their marriage license application.
