Misty Spann married her mother, Patricia Ann Spann, on 25 March 2015. They were then adopted and raised by their paternal grandmother, reports Daily Mail. She said she and Misty "hit it off" after being reunited in 2014.

But their marriage was brought to the attention of authorities during a child welfare investigation, according to the Associated Press.

In Oklahoma, incest is a felony, and, if convicted, is punishable up to 10 years in prison.

Misty made a decision to take a plea deal, admitting to the relationship in exchange for a lighter sentence.

District Judge Ken Graham gave Misty Spann a deferred sentence of 10 years, at least two of which must be under the supervision of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, online court records show.

Patricia Spann, who is also charged with incest, is set to appear in court in January.

Her case has been delayed to February so that she could undergo surgery.

It's not the first time she has married one of her children.

She also married one of her sons, Jody Calvin Spann, in 2008. The marriage was annulled in 2010 after her son described it as incestuous, Tulsa World reported.

Misty also annulled her marriage with her mum, putting down "illegality and fraud" in the reasons box. She reportedly said her mother assured her she had received legal advice that indicated it was not a crime for them to Wednesday.

Patricia Spann said she didn't think they violated any laws because her name was no longer on Misty Spann's birth certificate. In the complaint, Misty stated that her mother "consulted with three separate attorneys who advised there would be no problem with the marriage". "When I went to school with her, she had a girlfriend, and they both worked at Sonic". She forced my sister into this, there's a lot of people that now that.

Patricia Spann insisted to investigators she didn't have contact with her kids until a few years ago.

Under Oklahoma law, it's illegal to marry a close relative even if the relationship isn't sexual.
