Facebook Photos Gets Man Arrested For Polygamy

Facebook Photos Get Man Arrested For Polygamy


If your husband unfriends you on Facebook, beware. He might be planning to marry another woman without letting you know or bothering for a divorce.

Rhode Island man Richard Leon Barton Jr. got married in 2004, but hadn't seen his wife for a while after he got arrested and ended up in jail. She got suspicious when he unfriended her, so she started doing some snooping and found photos on Facebook of Richard's recent wedding to another woman! She called the police and now Richard has been charged with polygamy, which carries a possible four-year sentence. But the local paper explains he might end up in jail longer: "He could face more time as a repeat offender, not to mention an alleged repeat husband."

Just another warning to keep your illegal marriages off the Internet. Don't forget, Homeland Security uses Facebook to keep tabs on couples it suspects to be in fraudulent marriages for immigration purposes!
