A French woman is facing up to 10 years in prison and a hefty fine of up to $170,000 for remarrying her ex-husband without his knowledge.
The woman worked as a judge. She reportedly decided to take revenge on her ex-husband, after he had left her for another woman.
Her bizarre plan involved remarrying her husband without his knowledge or consent, so as to prevent him from moving on with his life alongside his new partner.
In March of 2019, she forged the necessary paperwork and IDs, and together with an accomplice who posed as her husband said “yes” in front of the mayor.
The judge is facing charges of “forgery and use of forgery in public or authentic writing” and “obtaining and use of false administrative documents by a person depositing public authority”.
