PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota man who is married to two women at the same time has been sentenced to a year of probation and ordered to end both marriages.

The Capital Journal reports that (https://bit.ly/1JbIsni ) 35-year-old Brian Wright pleaded guilty in Pierre on Tuesday to a bigamy charge. Authorities say he married a woman in May while still being married to a woman who now lives in Bismarck, North Dakota.

The first wife alerted authorities after seeing pictures posted on Facebook by Wright’s second wife.

Wright told Judge John Brown that he didn’t properly end his first marriage because his wife had moved away. Brown told him to “get your messy affairs in order” by legally ending both marriages and then remarrying his second wife.
