Texas guy granted Sentence By Judge: Get Married, Or Go To Jail

More than many men have already been proven to jokingly call their unique spouses «the ol’ basketball and cycle,» or be mocked some by their particular bachelor celebration friends for appreciating their «last day of liberty.»

When it comes to a Texas man though, it was the exact opposite: engaged and getting married was a get-out-of-jail-free credit.

That is where circumstances had gotten strange. The judge, Randall Lee Rogers, offered Bundy a selection that seems straight-out of a sitcom: He might go to jail for 15 times, which would have price Bundy his task. Or, he could take 2 yrs of probation, with two distinguished problems: within his probation, he’d need to duplicate away Bible passages day-after-day, and more importantly, get married within thirty day period.

Bundy decided to marry their 19-year-old gay men dating girlfriend, Elizabeth Jaynes, regardless of the possible unconstitutionality in the phrase. 

The bride’s daddy told CNN he was «really angry,» and it is pursuing their options to attempt to have the phrase overturned. Bundy’s now-wife, Jaynes, told local station KLTV that she did not be sorry for the decision attain married, but that «It really decided we weren’t going to be in a position to possess wedding ceremony we wanted.»

That they had a hastily organized matrimony within courthouse, this means Bundy remained away from prison, and published the picture below to Facebook.

Congratulations (?) for the newlyweds.
