Man sentenced for marrying mother, daughter

A Pennsylvania man was sentenced to prison last week after pleading no contest to charges that he married a woman ― and then married her daughter a year later without first obtaining a divorce.

A judge ordered Christopher I. Hauptmann, 44, to serve a term ranging from one year minus a day to two years minus a day, Penn Live reported.


Hauptmann was convicted of bigamy, forgery and unsworn falsification to authorities.


Hauptmann had used the alias “Christopher Buckley” on some documents, the report said.


Ironically, the former owner of a bail bonds business in Shamokin ― about 70 miles north of Harrisburg ―  was unable to post his own bail. But his 332 days of time already served will go toward his sentence.

Shannon Deitrich, the woman Hauptmann married in 2015, testified against him. Hauptmann married Deitrich’s daughter, Kaylee Durovick, the following year without having first divorced Deitrich, the website reported.


The daughter was 18 at the time, according to Inside Edition.


Hauptmann is now prohibited from contacting Deitrich but is reportedly still married to Durovick.

Some charges against “Christopher Buckley,” filed in Schuylkill County, remain unresolved, PennLive reported.


Fingerprints confirmed Hauptmann and Buckley were the same person, according to authorities, the website reported.
