Mom who once married son arrested for marrying daughter

Patricia has three children, and court records show that in 2008 she married her son, Jody Spann Jr.

An Oklahoma mother has been sentenced to two years in prison for marrying her biological daughter.

Patricia claimed that she didn't have a sexual relationship with her son and had married him so he wouldn't be sent into the military. She was sentenced to 10 years of probation and ordered to receive counseling.

Under a plea deal, Spann was sentenced to two years in jail and a further eight on probation.

The illegal relationship between mother and daughter was brought to the attention of authorities after a child welfare investigator who visited the family on an unrelated case reported them to police.

Duncan police found out about the marriage from a worker with the Department of Human Services.

The mother lost custody of her children and reunited with her daughter in 2014.

Patricia Spann has said she thought the marriage was legal because she lost custody of her daughter and two sons years ago and isn't listed on their birth certificates.

However, after the sentencing, a legal technicality was discovered that prohibited the agreed upon type of probation - a deferred sentence - in an incest case.

He, like Misty, filed for an annulment just over a year later citing "incest" as the reason. A judge annulled that marriage in 2010, at the son's request, on incest grounds.
