SAN ANTONIO – A 31-year-old San Antonio woman was sentenced Friday to a year in federal prison for crashing weddings and stealing credit cards from the wedding participants while the couple said their vows.
Robin Neafie pleaded guilty to federal access device charges in April and was sentenced in U.S. District Court on Friday.
Prosecutors said she found weddings by looking through newspaper announcements or local church listings and then showing up well-dressed for an event.
While the ceremony was going on, authorities said she rifled through wallets and purses left unattended by wedding party members.
Prosecutors said Neafie continued the scheme for four years before being caught in June 2006 after victims reported unauthorized charges.
