Court records: Oklahoma woman pleads guilty to incest
DUNCAN, Okla. (KOKH) —
An Oklahoma woman has pleaded guilty to incest after marrying her mother.
Stephens County court records show that 26-year-old Misty Spann has entered a guilty plea to an incest charge. Spann received a 10-year deferred sentence for the charge.
Her mother, 44-year-old Patricia Spann, also faces a charge of incest. Patricia has pleaded not guilty to the charge. Her trial has been continued until January.
The two were arrested in September 2016. Reports show that a Department of Human Services investigation led to their arrest after the two filed for a marriage license.
At the time, investigators said Misty and her brothers were raised by a grandparent after Patricia lost custody of them. Patricia allegedly told the investigator that she didn't believe she was breaking the law because she wasn't listed on Misty's birth certificate.
Patricia also told DHS that the two hit it off after reuniting two years ago.
