Basically Worse: Engaged And Getting Married Or Likely To Jail?

Tx guy Given Sentence By assess: Get hitched, Or Go To Jail

More than various guys happen proven to jokingly contact their own spouses “the ol’ ball and cycle,” or even be mocked a bit by their own bachelor celebration guests for taking pleasure in their own “last day of independence.”

In the case of a Texas guy though, it was the opposite: marriage was a get-out-of-jail-free card.

That’s where circumstances had gotten odd. The judge, Randall Lee Rogers, provided Bundy an option that sounds straight-out of a sitcom: the guy may go to prison for 15 days, which probably would have cost Bundy his task. Or, the guy could take 2 years of probation, with two distinguished conditions: included in his probation, he would must copy Bible passages each and every day, and even more importantly, get hitched within a month.

Bundy chose to wed his 19-year-old gf, Elizabeth Jaynes, despite the likely unconstitutionality of sentence. 

The bride’s grandfather informed CNN he had been “really disappointed,” and is also looking for his choices to attempt to get the phrase overturned. Bundy’s now-wife, Jaynes, told regional place KLTV that she don’t regret the specific choice to obtain married, but that “it simply decided we had beenn’t probably going to be able to experience the wedding ceremony we wished.”

That they had a quickly positioned relationship at courthouse, consequently Bundy remained of prison, and uploaded the image below to myspace.

Congratulations (?) for the newlyweds.
