A man from Branson has been sentenced to one year in jail after pleading guilty yesterday (03-19-12) to bigamy.
Taney County Prosecutor Jeff Merrell says Kelly Marie Crow, who was married to Michael Steven Crow, 43, from December of 2006 to April of 2011 started investigating her husband's past when she filed for divorce.
Investigators with the Hollister police department found two other marriage licenses for the man and two other women; Kerry Lynn Ogden was married to Crow from April of 2000 to June of 2008 and the other from July of 2001 until present.
Merrell says, "This crime is rather rare, but can have a dramatic and devastating impact on families. My sincerest sympathy goes out to the victims of this man's crimes."
Crow was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine.
