Man marries wife’s daughter

A 44-year-old man has been sentenced to prison after he was found guilty of bigamy, forgery and un-sworn falsification.

Christopher Hauptmann from Pennsylvania married a 43-year-old woman and then married her 18-year-old daughter a year later without going through the legal processes of divorcing the wife.

According to Reuters, Hauptmann had used a fake name “Christopher Buckley” on some of his documents. Hauptmann had his wife, Deitrich in 2015, and then went further to marry Deitrich’s daughter in 2016 without having first divorced Deitrich.

The daughter was 18 at the time of the incident.

Hauptmann is now prohibited from contacting Deitrich, but is reportedly still married to Durovick.
