An Oklahoma mom and her daughter have been arrested and charged with incest after the authorities learned that the two of them “hit it off” after being reunited. According to court documents, the 45-year-old mother married her 26-year-old in 2016 after marrying with one of her son in 2008.
Oklahoma Mom Says Wedding’s Legit Because She Lost Custody
On Tuesday, the Oklahoma authorities arrested 45-year-old Patricia Ann Spann, a Norman resident, and 26-year-old Misty Velvet Dawn Spann, her biological daughter. The two of them were charged with incest after the authorities learned that Spann married her daughter in 2016.
According to the police report, Spann divorced her husband some time ago and lost custody of Misty. She was to be reunited with her daughter in 2014. They got married in 2016 and managed to stay below the radar for the past two years until a recent welfare check.
When confronted with the deed, the Oklahoma mom admitted marrying her 26-year-old daughter but declared that the move was legal as the woman lost custody of the child, her name being erased from Misty’s birth certificate.
Following the discovery of Spann’s unlawful wedlock, the authorities annulled the wedding certificate in 2017.
The investigation revealed that this was not the first time the 45-year-old Oklahoma mom tried to marry a family member. In 2008, the woman allegedly married one of her biological sons. However, the union would be uncovered in 2010 and annulled.
Spann and her daughter were arrested and charged with incest. Following a court plea, Patricia Spann was sentenced to eight years of probation. Furthermore, the judge also ordered the Oklahoma mom to pay a $1,500 fine and to register as a sex offender.
Misty is due to return to court to receive her sentence.
