The Associated Press reported that 35-year-old Richard Barton Jr. was sentenced Monday to 12 days in jail, which he has already served. His bond was revoked last week because he failed to show evidence that he had divorced at least one of his two wives.

The court now has the proof it sought: a divorce granted last month from the Rhode Island woman Barton wed in 2004 and an annulment granted from the woman he married in July 2010 in Muskegon.
