Oklahoma woman who married mom sentenced in incest case

An Oklahoma woman was sentenced on Tuesday after pleading guilty to incest for marrying her biological mother previous year.

The New York Post reports that Misty Spann, 26, was sentenced to 10 years probation for the marriage to her biological mother, Tulsa World reported.

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

Incest in Oklahoma is a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Patricia Spann told the welfare worker she lost contact with her three kids for years after their paternal grandmother was granted custody, according to court records obtained byThe Lawton Constitution.

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

Court records show she also married her biological son in Comanche County back in 2008 and was annulled in 2010.

Patricia is expected to appear in court in January.

A woman has been found guilty of incest after marrying her mother.

The daughter said that her mother had convinced her at the time by saying that their marriage would be considered legal.

"I think she's just a sick, twisted individual that has something messed up in her head", Cody, 25, told PEOPLE last September. She was also once married to her son, who had the marriage annulled after claiming incest.

She "had looked into" marrying her daughter and wrongly determined she it was allowed because her name no longer appears on Misty's birth certificate, the document added.

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

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. When she and Misty were reunited, Patricia allegedly said they "hit it off".

However, GSA is rare between people raised together in early childhood due to a reverse sexual imprinting known as the Westermarck effect, which desensitizes them sexual attraction.
