Oklahoma woman who married mother pleads guilty to incest

  Oklahoma woman who married mother pleads guilty to incest An Oklahoma woman who married her biological mother has pleaded guilty to incest. Court records show 26-year-old Misty Spann of Duncan pleaded guilty Tuesday in Stephens County District Court. Under the deal, she was sentenced to 10 years of probation. Her mother, 44-year-old Patricia Spann, has pleaded not guilty to incest. Prosecutors say the two married in 2016. Court records show the marriage was annulled last month at the request of Misty Spann on the grounds of fraud and illegality. Patricia Spann has said she thought the marriage was legal because she had lost custody of her daughter and two sons years ago and isn't listed on their birth certificates. Prosecutors say Patricia Spann also married one of her sons. That marriage was annulled in 2010.

Records also state that Patricia thought the marriage was legal because her name was no longer on Misty's birth certificate. KOTV points out that Patricia married her biological son in 2008, but that was annulled in 2010 after he called it " incestuous ."

Misty Velvet Dawn Spann was 25 years old when she married her mother Patricia Spann, 42, in Sept. 2016, according to Oklahoma District Court records. Misty now faces a 10-year deferred sentence after pleading guilty to that incestual marriage, according to CBS affiliate KOTV in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The marriage was annulled six weeks later in the city of Duncan. Misty is now 26 years old.

Records show that the mother lost custody of her children -- who were adopted -- when they were little. KOTV writes that Patricia told investigators she and Misty "hit it off" when they were reconnected in 2014.

The twins made their debut at the CTA's Roosevelt Street station Wednesday morning after their mother went into labor on the Red Line platform, fire officials said. Paramedics were called to the mezzanine level of the station in the 1100 block of South State Street around 7:30 a.m., according to the CTA."It went surprisingly smoothly for the first run of the day," paramedic Maire Shields said."She's a tough girl," she added about the mother, in her early 30s.

Family members, including Misty's brother, spoke out about the controversial marriage to local media saying that she was pressured into the relationship.

"She forced my sister into this, there's a lot of people that know it," Cody Spann said. "For you to want to put your own daughter through this, what kind of person are you?"
