Woman charged with bigamy; married to 10 men simultaneously


MIAMI -- A 26-year-old Miami woman was married to 10 men at the same time, prosecutors allege, in a marriage-for-pay scheme to enable the men to remain in the United States.

Eunice Lopez was charged with nine counts of bigamy Wednesday. The charges say she married the men between 2002 and 2006 without divorcing any of them. In one case, she married two men in the same month.

On June 22, 2002 Lopez married Mauricio Carlo Matos as evidenced by a Certificate of Marriage filed with the Miami-Dade County Clerk of the Court on June 27, 2002.

On Aug. 11, 2003, while still married to Natos, Lopez married Jose L. Ramos. A Certificate of Marriage was filed with the clerk of the court on Aug. 19, 2003.

On March 5, 2005, while still married to Natos and Ramos, Lopez married Antonio Roberto Cordeiro. A certificate of marriage was filed with the clerk of the court on March 15, 2005.

On Nov. 5, 2005, Lopez married Humberto Navarro Suarez. A certificate of marriage was filed on Nov. 8, 2005. Lopez was still married to Natos, Ramos and Cordeiro.

Just 12 days after her marriage to Suarez, Lopez married Leandro Abelha on Nov. 17, 2005. The same day a marriage certificate was filed with the clerk of the court.

On Jan. 6, 2006, Lopez married Euclides Yepes Ceballos. There were still no divorce proceedings on file for Lopez with the clerk of the court, but a marriage certificate was issued on Jan. 9, 2006.

On May 11, 2006, Lopez married Martin Errazola Alvarez. The same day a marriage certificate was filed with the clerk of the court.

On June 2, 2006, Marco Antonio Serrano and Lopez were married. Again, on the same day, a certificate of marriage was filed with the clerk of the court.

On July 24, 2006, Diego M. Hernandez-Figueroa and Lopez were married and the same day a certificate of marriage was filed with the clerk of the court.

On Nov. 21, 2006, Lopez married Fernando Jose Urroz Leguisamo. A certificate of marriage was filed with the clerk of the court the same day.

She was held at the Women's Detention Center on $75,000 bond, but posted bond Friday morning, according to the state attorney's office. The investigation is continuing.

1. And when her children grow up, they can play a new game show!
Called "Wheel of Father", they will spin it and see which daddy's name comes up!





Indeed, each father has his own nickname:

2. It better be five different charges of bigamy, or it just doesn't make mathematical sense.
What, they don't have a polygamy charge?

5. Marriage for Pay.
She wasn't looking for love. Those were guys who needed to be married for some reason. 10:1 it was for immigration purposes.

4. Did she really think that nobody would ever catch on?
Did she think that ICE never does background checks and doesn't notice things like this? :shrug:

It's really great that she wanted to help people with their immigration. That's admirable. But foolish at the same time.
