Woman Handed 10 Year Prison Sentence For Marrying Her Mom

An Oklahoma woman faces a 10-year prison sentence after it was revealed she married her mother, according to court records.

Misty Spann, 26, received the highest punishment possible after she plead guilty to incest for marrying her biological mother, reported the New York Post Thursday.

Spann married her mother in Patricia Ann Spann in 2016 after the two reconnected while in jail in 2014. Patricia Ann had lost custody of her two children, so Spann was raised by her grandmother.

After reconnecting, the two eventually tied the knot. Patricia Ann defended the marriage, arguing that she thought it was acceptable because Spann’s birth certificate no longer said she was her mother.

Patricia Ann also faces charges for incest and is scheduled to appear in court in January. Spann was supposed to face trial, but it was dropped after she plead guilty.

Patricia Ann previously married her son in 2008; the marriage was later annulled two years later after her son called it incestuous.
