CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Investigators say a Corvallis man had two June weddings within three years and has been charged with bigamy.
The start of a divorce led to the felony charge against 42-year-old Michael Wayne Haliburton II.
He got married June 12 after checking the "single" box on the marriage license application.
A few months later, Jackson says, a woman Haliburton married in 2009 called his probation officer for his address to have divorce papers served.
Benton County Undersheriff Scott Jackson says such a charge is rare. State officials told the Corvallis Gazette-Times bigamy is usually unintentional — somebody mistakenly thinks a divorce has been made final.
Haliburton pleaded not guilty Wednesday. He's also accused of methamphetamine possession, resisting arrest and interfering with a peace officer during his arrest.
