Judge Orders Man To Marry His Girlfriend Or Go To Jail

 In a funny and surprising judgement, a 21 year old Texan who was arrested for a misdemeanor assault against his girlfriend’s ex, Josten Bundy was faced with a choice between two years probation or fifteen days in jail. Whilst it seemed a pretty straightforward choice, the probation had some unusual conditions attached.

According to CNN:

A Texas man who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge of punching his girlfriend’s ex was given a choice between marrying her or going to jail for the crime.

Josten Bundy, 21, pleaded guilty on July 2 to assault with bodily injury, stemming from a brawl he had with the former boyfriend of Elizabeth Jaynes back in February.

Smith County Judge Randall Rogers then gave him a choice between two years of probation or 15 days in jail, according to Jaynes, 19.

The probation terms included requiring Bundy to write out a Bible verse 25 times a day (“If a man digs a pit, he will fall into it.” — Proverbs 26:27), and getting married within 30 days.

“We figured he’d get probation but were surprised about the other conditions, especially the marriage,” Jaynes told CNN on Friday.

“Then the the judge asked Josten if I was worth it and if we were living together, and we both said ‘yes.’ When the judge said part of the probation was that we had to get married Josten smiled at me and I was turning red. The judge said, ‘You might want to check with
her first.’ Josten said that because my face was red he thought I was OK with it, but then the judge made me stand up and asked me if I was OK with it. I said yes. People were laughing behind me and the bailiff had to say ‘order in the court.’ It was embarrassing.”

Jaynes said she told her parents about what happened in court and her father was very angry. He told them they didn’t have to go through with it but they did, getting married at City Hall on July 20.

Lolz! If every assult judgement were to be handled this way, every guy would commit crimes against their girlfriend they are madly in love with, so could get married quickly. Abi no be so?
