New York woman marries 10 times without divorce

Divorce | 11 Apr 2015 0

A Manhattan woman faces criminal prosecution after she allegedly married ten men over eleven years.

According to a criminal complaint made against her, the 39 year-old married each of these men between 1999 and 2010 without ever getting divorced from any of them. Eight of these marriages occurred between November 2001 and August 2002.

The weddings all took place within New York State in the areas surrounding Manhattan such as Long Island and Westchester County.

The woman was charged with two counts of fraud in the State Supreme Court. If she is found guilty, she could face up to four years in prison for each offense.

Local government officials began looking into her past after her wedding in the New York borough of The Bronx in 2010. She claims that it was “her first and only marriage”, according to the complaint.

While the reason for her multiple marriages is not apparent, the New York Times reports that the federal Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is involved in the case. The DHS handles issues with immigration to the United States, although the immigration status of the ten grooms is not known. Neither the prosecutors nor the DHS has said if the men will face any charges in relation to this case.
