Woman who Wednesday her mum pleads guilty

Authorities said Patricia Spann told investigators she had lost custody of her daughter and two sons who were adopted and raised by their paternal grandmother

An Oklahoma woman who last year married her biological mother who'd lost custody of her was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years probation after pleading guilty to incest, PEOPLE confirms.

Misty Spann, 26, of Duncan, Okla., pleaded guilty in Stephens County District Court and under the deal was sentenced to 10 years of probation.

Incest in the U.S. state of Oklahoma is a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Misty Spann married her mother, Patricia Ann Spann, on 25 March 2015.

The marriage, however, was later annulled on 12 October, 2017, according to Stephens County court records, with Misty Spann filing for the annulment "by reason of illegality and fraud".

Misty said at the time that her mother told her she had received legal advice indicating that their marriage was legal.

In 2008, she married her own son, but 15 months later this marriage was annulled by the authorities. She and her Misty Velvet Dawn Spann "hit it off", reported New York Daily News.

Department of Human Services investigators discovered the illegal relationship in August 2016 while investigating the children who were inside the Spanns' home.

In Oklahoma, incest is a felony, and if convicted, is punishable up to 10 years in prison.

"Why she chose her daughter, I'm not sure", Smith said.

Misty and Jody's brother Cody Spann told KSWO that his mother manipulated both his sister and brother into marriage. "She forced my sister into this, there's a lot of people that know it", he told KWSO. "If that's what you want that's on you, but none of us kids want that, and now you got my sister behind bars because of your choices, why don't you let that sit on you as a mom'". Patricia told officers about her history with her children as well as her current relationship, not realising what she was saying was incriminating.

The term GSA was coined 30 years ago by American Barbara Gonyo. Was she an adult? The Spann children were raised by their paternal grandmother.

Experts believe that this effect evolved to prevent inbreeding.
