That Will Be Worse: Engaged And Getting Married Or Gonna Jail?

Colorado guy Given Sentence By assess: Get Married, Or head to Jail

More than many guys have-been recognized to jokingly call their unique wives “the ol’ baseball and chain,” or be mocked somewhat by their particular bachelor party guests chat rooms for strangers appreciating their particular “last day’s liberty.”

In the case of a Tx man however, it absolutely was the exact opposite: engaged and getting married was actually a get-out-of-jail-free card.

That is where situations got peculiar. The judge, Randall Lee Rogers, provided Bundy an option that appears straight-out of a sitcom: the guy could go to jail for 15 times, which probably would have price Bundy his task. Or, the guy might take 2 yrs of probation, with two noteworthy circumstances: included in their probation, he’d must copy away Bible passages daily, and more importantly, get hitched within 1 month.

Bundy thought we would get married their 19-year-old sweetheart, Elizabeth Jaynes, regardless of the likely unconstitutionality on the phrase. 

The bride’s daddy told CNN he was “really annoyed,” and is seeking his choices to try and get the sentence overturned. Bundy’s now-wife, Jaynes, informed neighborhood station KLTV that she didn’t feel dissapointed about the particular decision in order to get married, but that “it simply decided we had beenn’t probably going to be in a position to experience the wedding ceremony we wanted.”

They had a hastily arranged matrimony from the courthouse, therefore Bundy stayed from jail, and uploaded the picture below to Facebook.

Congratulations (?) on newlyweds.
