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

More than various men have now been proven to jokingly call their particular wives “the ol’ basketball and chain,” or be mocked quite by their bachelor celebration guests for appreciating their particular “last day’s freedom.”

In the example of a Tx man though, it absolutely was the opposite: engaged and getting married was actually a get-out-of-jail-free credit.

That’s where circumstances got peculiar. The judge, Randall Lee Rogers, offered Bundy a selection that sounds straight-out of a sitcom: He could go to jail for 15 days, which would have expense Bundy their work. Or, he could take 2 yrs of probation, with two significant circumstances: As part of their probation, he’d need to copy aside Bible verses day-after-day, and even more importantly, get married within 30 days.

Bundy chose to get married his 19-year-old girl, Elizabeth Jaynes, regardless of the probable unconstitutionality in the sentence. 

The bride’s parent informed CNN he was “really angry,” and is also searching for their options to try to have the sentence overturned. Bundy’s now-wife, Jaynes, informed regional section KLTV that she don’t feel dissapointed about the decision in order to get hitched, but that “It just felt like we had beenn’t likely to be in a position to have the wedding ceremony we wanted.”

That they had a quickly arranged relationship in the courthouse, which means that Bundy remained regarding jail, and published the picture below to Twitter.

Congratulations (?) towards the newlyweds.
