Alleged serial bride charged with fraud 03:26

NEW YORK - Never a bridesmaid, always a bride!

Police say New York City woman Liana Barrientos faces fraud charges after allegedly marrying 10 different men over an 11-year period. The Bronx District Attorney says Barrientos had as many as eight husbands at once.

Barrientos is charged with filing a fake instrument, i.e. a phony marriage license and application. The DA's office says she faced two counts of felony fraud at her arraignment Friday, where she pleaded not guilty.

If convicted, the DA says she could get up to four years in prison.

The criminal complaint alleges the 39-year-old woman obtained two of the marriage licenses in the Bronx. It says the others were obtained all over Westchester County and Long Island. The first one allegedly was obtained in 1999.

According to CBS New York, Barrientos married Mohamed Gerbil in November 1999, Ahmed Allam in November 2001, Habibur Rahman also in November 2001, Davit Koridze in February 2002, Duran Goktepe in March 2002, Aliaksandr Paharelau also in March 2002, Vakhtang Dzneladze in May 2002, Rashid Rajput in July 2002, Kakhaber Khorbaladze in August 2002, and Salle Keita in March 2010, prosecutors allege.

The complaint says she was arrested following a probe of her most recent marriage in 2010.

It wasn't immediately clear if she had a lawyer.

Or maybe ten.
