Patricia Spann, 43 (left) from Oklahoma is facing jail time after she married her daughter 25-year-old Misty Spann (right) in March 2016 and police learnt she had previously married her son, Jody in 2008 but divorced him in 2010 after he filed for incest. According to Patricia she married her son to get him out of Military service.
Patricia and Misty’s relationship was discovered by the Department of Human Services during a child welfare investigation last month and according to police, Patricia Spann said she lost custody of her daughter and two sons at birth, and they were raised by their paternal grandmother.
Patricia was reunited with her daughter Misty in 2014 and after ‘bonding’ with her decided to marry Misty in 2016 which is considered Incest under state laws whether sex is involved or not.
A warrant was issued for the arrest of mother and daughter on Friday last week and they were both charged with incest and booked into the Stephens County Jail. Then on Wednesday this week, the two women appeared before Judge Ken Graham and both pleaded not guilty.
The mother told police she didn’t believe she broke any laws by marrying her daughter because her name is no longer listed on Misty’s birth certificate.
Misty and Jody’s brother Cody Spann told KSWO that his mother manipulated both his sister and brother into marriage:
‘I think she’s worthless she put my sister into this. She forced my sister into this, there’s a lot of people that know it,’ he said. For you to want to put your own daughter through this, what kind of person are you? 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.’
