PRATTVILLE, Ala. – A minister who tried to perform a gay wedding in an Alabama courthouse has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct.
The Montgomery Advertiser (http://on.mgmadv.com/1EXTbRt ) reports 44-year-old Anne Susan DiPrizio entered the plea Monday in Autauga County.
A judge ordered her to pay a $250 fine and suspended her 30-day jail sentence.
Authorities arrested the Unitarian minister in February in Prattville while some counties were issuing same-sex wedding licenses in Alabama.
DiPrizio had offered to marry two women inside the Autauga County Probate Office even though the judge had banned all ceremonies in the office the day before.
The wedding didn't take place, but the women did get a marriage license.
Counties have since quit issuing the licenses as the U.S. Supreme Court considers whether same-sex weddings are constitutional.
