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

Patricia Ann Spann plead guilty to felony incest at Stephens County District Court on March 13, 2018. She was sentenced to 10 years of probation and ordered to receive counseling. Spann admitted to marrying her biological daughter in March 2016 and living together in Duncan.

An employee with the Department of Human Services discovered the two were married and reported the couple to police. The worker reportedly learned of the illicit relationship while conducting a child welfare investigation.

In her request for the annulment, Misty Spann complained her mother claimed to have "consulted with three separate attorneys who advised there would be no problems with the marriage".

According to court documents, DHS workers "uncovered information that led (the worker) to believe there was an incestuous relationship occurring between Spann and the mother".

According to the Oklahoman, Misty Spann also had the marriage annulled in October previous year after arguing she had been fraudulently induced into it.

The automaker also announced pricing for its electric e-Tron SUV due out later this year: €80,000 (or $128,000) in Europe. The first example of this is Audi's new A6 large sedan, which debuted at last week's Geneva auto show.

Mother, Patricia Spann, and daughter, Misty Spann have since divorced, with Patricia explaining she didn't think they'd broken any laws as her name was no longer on her daughter's birth certificate.

Her daughter, Misty, pleaded guilty to a count of incest in exchange for probation.

However, after the sentencing, it was discovered that probation involving a deferred sentence is prohibited in an incest case. Misty is expected to make a new plea next week. However, a legal technicality allowed her to later withdraw her guilty plea.

Her son, who was 18 years old at the time, annulled the marriage on incest charges in 2010 after tying the knot with his mother in 2008, according to the Oklahoman.

Investigators later discovered Patricia Ann Spann had previously Wednesday her son.
