Misty Spann pleaded guilty in November in exchange for probation. However, her plea was withdrawn when it was learned the type of probation she was given  is not allowed under state law.

Court records show the marriage was annulled in October at Misty Spann’s request on grounds of fraud and illegality. 

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.
