NEW YORK – A woman accused of marrying 10 times in an immigration scam has reported to a Bronx court a day late after a warrant was issued for her arrest.
Liana Barrientos pleaded not guilty in April to lying on forms. She was scheduled for a court appearance Monday, but didn't show up. Prosecutors say she appeared Tuesday on her own. Bail was set at $10,000 and her next court date is June 8.
According to a criminal complaint, the 39-year-old woman obtained two of the marriage licenses in the Bronx. The others were obtained in Westchester County and on Long Island.
The complaint says she was arrested following a probe of her most recent marriage in 2010.
Her lawyer has not commented on the case and didn't immediately respond to a new request.
