Texas Man granted Sentence By Judge: Get hitched, Or choose Jail

More than certain men happen recognized to jokingly call their spouses “the ol’ basketball and sequence,” or perhaps be mocked slightly by their own bachelor party friends for enjoying their unique “last day’s freedom.”

In the example of a Tx guy though, it absolutely was the alternative: engaged and getting married was a get-out-of-jail-free card.

That’s where circumstances got odd. The judge, Randall Lee Rogers, offered Bundy a selection that sounds straight out of a sitcom: the guy may go to jail for 15 days, which probably would have cost Bundy their work. Or, the guy could take couple of years of probation, with two noteworthy problems: within his probation, he’d need to duplicate away Bible passages every single day, and more importantly, get hitched within 1 month.

Bundy thought we would get married their 19-year-old girlfriend, Elizabeth Jaynes, in spite of the possible unconstitutionality from the sentence. 

The bride’s father told CNN he was “really disappointed,” and is looking for hookup for their choices to try and get the sentence overturned. Bundy’s now-wife, Jaynes, told local place KLTV that she don’t be sorry for the particular decision attain hitched, but that¬†“it decided we had beenn’t gonna be able to experience the wedding we wished.”

They had a quickly organized wedding on courthouse, consequently Bundy stayed out-of jail, and uploaded the image below to myspace.

Congratulations (?) to your newlyweds.
