Trial Delayed In Iowa Gay Marriage Fraud Case



Bookmark and Share

Trial has been delayed for an Iowa court official charged with lying to help a same-sex couple from Florida obtain a marriage license.
 
A judge cited "ongoing plea negotiations" in delaying Brigitte Van Nice's trial from Wednesday until April 17. Prosecutor Jennifer Miller said Thursday that no plea deal has been finalized. Van Nice is charged with tampering with records, forgery and perjury.
 
Van Nice is accused of filing false documents claiming she had officiated the Florida couple's Valentine's Day wedding last year in Iowa. Investigators say the ceremony didn't take place and Van Nice faked the signatures of two people she claimed were witnesses.
 
The men thought they could get married without coming to Iowa. They paid Van Nice $150.

Van Nice was a deputy clerk in Grundy County.
