Two of the five members of a family accused of marrying 29 undocumented immigrants for money -- often without bothering to get divorces -- pleaded guilty to bigamy charges Thursday.

Eunice Lopez and her boyfriend, Rodneys Gonzalez, each received two years' probation and 75 hours of community service. Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Mark King Leban's sentence also requires each to dissolve their illegal marriages, make a $250 charitable contribution to a battered women's shelter, and pay for the costs of investigation.

Lopez pleaded guilty to nine counts, one for each fraudulent marriage, and Gonzalez to three.

Two other family members -- Eunice Lopez's mother, Eurice Rodriguez, and her uncle, Jesus Rodriguez -- are set for trial Monday on similar charges. Eurice Rodriguez is charged with five illegal marriages, and Jesus Rodriguez with three.

A fifth family member, Loida Rodriguez, Jesus' sister, is on the lam and believed to be back in her native Cuba, said a spokeswoman for State Attorney Katherine Fernández Rundle. There is an outstanding warrant for her arrest on nine bigamy charges.

All five family members are Cuban natives and legal U.S. residents. Authorities say they were charging foreign nationals fees ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 for sham marriages that would allow the immigrants to qualify for permanent U.S. residency.

Yes, something is very wrong -- it's called illegal immigration. This is merely one of myriad scams perpetrated by "immigrants" in this country. No surprise here. As usual, they receive a slap on the wrist.

Exactly. Don't you just love how IA's and their huggers perpetually blur the lines then get ticked off when all hispanics are lumped together? They really need to quit.

Due to the horrendous amount of criminal activity that is perpetuated in that culture, satan or anti-christ would be far more fitting.
