Group sentenced for fake marriage

| No Comments

A group of five people was sentenced Thursday on charges of taking part in false marriages, ITV News said.

The group in connection to the act, Amanda Nolan, 28, Jason Proctor, 40, Kevin Donnelly, 34, Denny Wallace, 22, and Gemma Nelson, 28, were arrested due to claims that they married Vietnamese immigrants wanting legal status in the United Kingdom, BBC News said.

Proctor and Donnelly were sentenced to ten months in jail, while Nolan, Wallace, and Nelson were given suspended prison sentences.

The group took pictures of their "wedding," and convinced the courthouse that the marriages were real. Police were tipped onto the mystery surrounding the "marriage" when Nolan left the country the day after his supposed wedding.
