Liana Barrientos of New York City has been a blushing bride a total of ten times. All at the same time.
In the last 11 years, she’s marched down the aisle with ten different grooms, without ever filing a single divorce paper.
The Bronx District Attorney is slapping the 39-year-old serial bride with felony charges for filing a fraudulent marriage license applications and receiving bogus marriage licenses. Each count can result up to four years in prison each.
Barrientos applied for the licenses from Long Island and Westchester County. We’re still not sure how they failed to cross-check her matrimonial history, nor why she needed to marry that many men at once.
What we’d really like to know though is how so many of them said “I do” to this mug in the first place.
One of the men was deported from the United States after making threats against the government.
Barrientos admitted to marrying people from red flagged terror prone countries like Pakistan, Georgia, Turkey, Mali and Egypt, in exchange for cash.
As soon as the wedding ceremony was over, seven husbands applied for permanent resident status in the country.
When some of them were denied, they filed for divorce and submitted new applications, stating that they were married to other women.
Barrientos was found in possession of numerous marriage certificates, which were obtained in several cities across the state, including Westchester County, Rockland County, and Long Island.
She was charged with two counts of offering a false instrument for filing, each punishable by up to four years in prison. The woman pleaded guilty to the charges, and was sentenced to undergo a drug treatment plan for 12 to 18 months.
