A 41-YEAR-OLD father has been convicted of bigamy, but has avoided jail for his crime.
Trevor Smith from Wheatley Road, WGC, wed Michelle Neville in Hertford on June 19 last year.
But he was already married.
Smith appeared at Central Herts Magistrates' Court in St Albans facing a charge brought under the Offences Against the Person Act 1861.

The court heard he deliberately married when his marriage was not long over, children were involved and he had plenty of time to take different action.
