ND man charged with fraud after fairy tale wedding
FARGO, N.D. (AP) - May 20, 2010 -- Prosecutors say the marriage of a couple at Fairy Tale Weddings in North Dakota was a fairy tale fraud.
Federal court documents released Wednesday say 23-year-old Jeffrey Goble agreed to marry 28-yera-old Alma Numic for $15,000 so the Bosnian woman could obtain U.S. citizenship in 2008.
Goble is now charged with marriage fraud. He could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted. A message left for his public defender wasn't returned.
Numic has since moved to Bosnia.
Court documents say the pair met through Goble's co-worker but parted ways after the wedding.
Fairy Tale Weddings didn't return messages. The Grand Forks wedding business' website encourages couples to "Let your imagination create your wedding day."
