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.

LarryDan43: Every porn movie ever made is between two people who love each other.

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.

Murder trial jurors = not scarred.

sex tape jurors = scared for life.

America.  Completely desensitized to violence.

"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.

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.

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.

Rapmaster2000: 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.

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.

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.

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...  :("

Every one of those women loved getting paid.

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

Unlike jurors in murder trials.
