I got picked for jury duty and all I got to see was an obese woman's varicose veins. :(

Jurors may have to see some stuff they might never be able to unsee

Unlike jurors in murder trials.

You have to get there early and sit in the front row.

Him: "Hey, I'll marry you so you can come into the country"
Her: "You're a good man!".
Him: (to police) "Psst, hey police, this might be a sham marriage"
Police: "Hey! This is a sham marriage"
Him: "Quick, we have to have sex, we have to have sex right now and film it, otherwise you get deported"
Her: "Ah...  :("

Marriage law doesn't require that the two parties love each other.  It's a complete non-factor.  In a sham marriage, there's no marital lifestyle; they live separate lives, as roommates and nothing more.  If these two were actually doing the rumpty-bumpty, then it's not a sham marriage.  It may be a  loveless marriage, born out of convenience, but that's totally legitimate under the law.

It probably blows too.

If she's not a complete beast and there's not a lot of ball close-ups, I would be ok with that.
 
2014-01-23 01:23:03 PM
I believe that's called 'showing off'.
 
2014-01-23 01:24:03 PM
That guy sounds like a real treat.

I know 10+ people that have done this.  It's a good way for young women to make extra money.  My friend got a car and $500 a month from a Turkish restaurant owner who needed to get legal.  I've never heard of anyone getting busted for it.  Must be a Florida thing.

Judge - I think you put in the wrong tape. All I see is a guy falling asleep.

Boyvoyeur - Don't put labels on me!

Jument: If she's not a complete beast and there's not a lot of ball close-ups, I would be ok with that.


I doubt there will be any close ups... usually these things have a static camera.

If there is a camera man and director involved in shooting these home sex tapes I will strongly suspect it has been staged.

Not related to TFA, but I noticed on that Florida-based web site that Florida seems to have a higher-than-usual number of murderers who are female.

Has anybody done a study?

He scammed millions from Fedex, UPS, and DHL.  He's going down, regardless of the type of marriage he has/had.
 
2014-01-23 01:33:12 PM
Y'know...

If you get a prenup- and STD tests I can think of worse agreements.

Marry hot immigrant chick for a few years... agree to just use each other ... she gets to come in country... he gets to come in girl from other country...

After a few years get divorced. (Make sure you have prenup- and she gets job).

Much cheaper, convenient and safer than a prostitute... and she gets entry to a better country.

Obviously girl would have to be OK with this arrangement first... if they're iffy about it... don't press them on something they may regret.

I think his problem is being charged with a bunch of other crimes and this just being thrown on top.

Technically a sham marriage only becomes illegal when obvious payment takes place. It is hard to prosecute because the money trail can be hard to find and immigration is overburdened.
 
2014-01-23 01:43:41 PM
FFS, prosecutors, just drop the lying to immigration charges if he has sex tapes and get onto the important crimes, like the mail fraud.  It's not like you don;t have enough already on the guy.

sdtangler: He scammed millions from Fedex, UPS, and DHL.  He's going down, regardless of the type of marriage he has/had.


Or did he... this guy's been here for 25 years. The only reason the prosecutors are pushing the sham marriage angle is because they want him gone. I'm not usually one to go for conspiracy stuff, but if he really did those things, he'd go to jail for a long time, and likely be deported afterwards, anyway. But if the prosecutors can get his marriage ruled invalid, he'll be gone whether he's convicted of the other things or not. Which suggests that he knows something that someone doesn't want known.

So....is his wife hot?

Farce-Side: So....is his wife hot?


I sure hope so.

I wouldn't want video evidence of me screwing an ugly fat girl, would you?

Only make sex tapes with hot chicks just in case... the internet.
 
2014-01-23 01:56:14 PM
Doesn't the fact that the videos show him having sex with his wife prove it was a sham marriage?  Anyone in a real marriage knows the sex stops as soon as the wedding band goes on.

He might be using this to prevent his wife from testifying and/or allow her to hold his assets while he's sued into oblivion.
 
hej
2014-01-23 02:02:40 PM
Why even have the tapes if you weren't planning on showing them off?
 
2014-01-23 02:05:02 PM
Psst: if your government has the authority to question your relationships to the point where exonerating yourself means showing your sex tapes to a jury, there's something seriously wrong with your government.

Yeah, it sounds like they are calling his marriage into question so they can just deport him right away.  This guy has drawn the case out for years and it is probably more hassle than it is worth for the DA to convict at this point.  He looks to be caught up in some kind customs scheme, leaving the shippers with the bill for the 90% import duty/tax sending goods back to Brasil.  Brasil... is the Nigeria of LatAm.  There are hundreds of these guys down here though.

I love how the story in the side-bar deals with Florida's 50 most notorious criminals and we get;

An alleged child-murderer
An executed serial killer
A guy who "roughed up the suspect" in a porno theater!

Prenups aren't worth the paper they are printed on. Getting married == you pay one way or the other. Just rent if you want to go cheap.

My ex did something like that while we were dating she married a gay coworker so he could stay, she went through the long process of getting names on accounts and paperwork, changed her addy to his place. She moved in some of her stuff to his place. She was supposed to get $15k for it. He took off to Spain with his boyfriend and left her hanging. Told her not to do it. It came back to bite her on the ass when she wanted to get married to the main guy she had been cheating on me with yeas later.

"I don't think that it would be fair to your wife," Rosenbaum told Scotton, explaining she needs to ensure that he gets a fair trial without unnecessarily violating his wife's privacy or introducing irrelevant matters.

"Why is the privacy of my wife important at this point?" Scotton asked the judge. "I'm facing jail time."


Well if his wife had doubts about their marriage being a sham before, I'm sure she doesn't have any now.

Nah, it just stops with your spouse.

And in this day and age, that can only lead to two things: a deal with Vivid and a thankfully short career in reality tv.

I apologize for this, but your last sentence really made me laugh.

My wife and I went through the whole immigration thing (she is from Uruguay) and the process was long and expensive enough to make me wonder about the wisdom of just doing it for a payday. I hired an attorney though, which certainly didn't make things cheaper.

Murder trial jurors = not scarred.

America.  Completely desensitized to violence.

And?

There is a reason we are the only superpower. We are better at violence than anybody. We love violence.

She could easily cry rape at any time during or after the fact. As much fun as that sounds, you'd be crazy to try it IMHO.

yeah. I remember when you didn't have to prove you were innocent, the prosecuter had to prove you were guilty.
