Player hating Johnson County Judge James Franklin Davis is making 62-year-old Charles L. Clemens pay for having two wives (well, ex-wives now).
Franklin reportedly ordered Clemens to pay one wife $1,500 a month in restitution and his second wife more than $37,000 total (or at least get back the jewelry he pawned).
Clemens' story is amazing. He was married for more than 20 years to one woman and ended up marrying another woman in the same apartment complex, just a few doors down from his other wife.
Clemens supposedly told his second wife, Jayme Wear,
that he was a retired police officer who traveled across the country
reconstructing accident scenes. Wear found out he wasn't telling the
truth. She also found out that Clemens' "Texas accent" wasn't real. He
was just some guy from Des Moines.
Clemens pleaded guilty to bigamy and identity theft in October, and the
judge sentenced him to a year and four months of jail time in December.
