A mother who married her long lost daughter has been jailed for incest – 10 years after marrying her son.
Patricia Spann, 45, lost custody of her daughter and two sons, but reunited with Misty, 26, in 2014.
The pair were wed two years later, soon after same-sex marriages were legalised in the state of Oklahoma, USA.
But after an employee of the Department of Human Services found out about their biological link during a child welfare check up, both women were charged with fraud.
Patricia told the DHS worker that she and Misty had “hit it off” after being reunited.
She added that she believed their marriage was legal, as her name was no longer on her daughter’s birth certificate. Their marriage was annulled in October 2017.
Patricia married her son Lawton – who was 18 – in 2008. The union was annulled two years later at his request.
While no charges were brought following that relationship, Patricia has been jailed for two years following her marriage to her daughter.
She was also sentenced to eight years on probation, and will be required to register as a sex offender on her release from prison.
Misty will be in court next week to make her own plea. – Yahoo News.
