Woman Who Married Her Biological Mother Sentenced In Tulsa

Woman Who Married Her Biological Mother Sentenced In Tulsa”

An Oklahoma woman who married her biological mother last year was sentenced to 10 years of probation Tuesday for committing incest.

Misty Spann and Patricia Spann were both charged with incest.

Patricia Spann is set to appear in court in January.

"We agreed upon her having a 10 year probationary sentence and received some court costs and fines and [she is] now court ordered to participate in individual counseling", Seiss said. Under state law, getting married to a close relative is considered incest whether or not a sexual relationship exists between the couple.

Another one of Patricia's sons told a local news station that she tried to have an inappropriate relationship with him as well, but he denied her advances.

Patricia Spann said that she didn't think the nuptials broke any laws because she was no longer listed as a parent on her daughter's birth certificate.

Their incestuous marriage was discovered by authorities during a child welfare investigation, the Associated Press reported.

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

Her mother, Patricia Spann, entered a plea of not guilty in February 2017; she is scheduled for a felony docket call at 9 a.m. Jan 3, 2018 after a continuation was granted in the August 2017 trial docket.

Two of those years will be under the supervision of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.

But that didn't stop her from using a fake name, Patricia Ann Clayton, on the pair's marriage license application, filed in Comanche County. She told authorities she "looked into" marrying Misty, and thought it was okay.

She also was married to her biological son in 2008 in Comanche County, according to Tulsa World.

Smith added that Misty and Patricia were trying to adopt a child as well and were hoping that marriage would simplify the process. "But the daughter we know for a fact that she knew".
