Woman pleads guilty to incest after marrying her own MUM

11 November 2017

In the USA state of Oklahoma, a local resident was sentenced to 10 years in prison for marriage with their own biological mother, reports the Tulsa World.

District Judge Ken Graham, according to court minutes, gave Misty Span a deferred sentence of 10 years, at least two of which must be under the supervision of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.

The 26-year-old spent the majority of her life without Patricia Ann Spann, however they reconnected recently and reportedly "hit it off".

Patricia Spann told the investigator that she lost custody of Misty Spann and her other two children, who were put in the care of their grandparents when they were children.

Misty also annulled her marriage with her mum, putting down "illegality and fraud" in the reasons box. The blood relatives married in Comanche County, after filing their license application in March 2016.

In September 2016, Patricia and Misty Spann were arrested for incest.

In Oklahoma, incest is a felony crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

The mounting allegations of sexual assault involving Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey are taking a mounting toll on his career. Broadway star Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of attempting to molest him when he was a teenager at a party in the 1980s.

The DHS worker said Patricia Spann never reported that she had married her biological son in Comanche County in 2008.

When investigators discovered the illegal relationship, Patricia told officials she didn't think she was breaking any laws by marrying Misty because her name is no longer listed on her daughter's birth certificate.

Patricia has pleaded not guilty to incest, and will appear in court for trial at a later date.

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

"My grandmother looked at my brother and told him that was his mom", Cody recalled. "Why would you want to be with one of your own kids?" He filed for an annulment 15 months later citing "incest", according to a court papers.

However, GSA is rare between people raised together in early childhood due to a reverse sexual imprinting known as the Westermarck effect, which desensitizes them sexual attraction.
