A WIFE in the middle of divorce proceedings was stunned when she logged on to her husband’s Facebook page and found he’d already remarried.
Diane Haynes was still legally wed to coach driver Paul Haynes when she discovered photographs showing him celebrating alongside new bride Sandra Johns both during and after their ceremony at Stamford, Lincolnshire.
Prosecutor Andrew Scott told Lincoln Crown Court that when Haynes, 38, arranged the marriage last year he lied to a deputy registrar and filled in forms to say that he was single.
Haynes, of Whittlesey, Cambridgeshire, admitted a Perjury Act offence by making a false statement in relation to a marriage. He was given a 16-week jail sentence suspended for a year with 80 hours community punishment and £250 costs.
Defence barrister Chris Jeyes said that Haynes, now divorced, intended to go through a valid marriage ceremony with Miss Johns.
