Man pleads guilty to bigamy in Facebook case

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A Washington man whose wife discovered through Facebook that he had married a second woman has pleaded guilty to attempted bigamy.

The Tacoma News Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/QfMKDy ) 42-year-old Alan O'Neill says he's "embarrassed and remorseful."

He was charged in March after his first wife learned of his second wife through a Facebook "people you may know" notification and alerted authorities. The second woman's profile photo showed her and O'Neill dressed in fancy clothes and standing near a wedding cake.

O'Neill was spared jail time but will be on probation for a year. He has annulled his second marriage and is divorcing his first wife.

His first wife wrote a letter supporting O'Neill, saying the media coverage has been enough punishment.

O'Neill's future as a Pierce County jailer remains in question.
