For Florida family, bigamy only begins to describe the crime

MIAMI — One by one, a family of swindlers marrying undocumented immigrants for cash is facing criminal charges, investigators say.

Prosecutors this week arrested Eurice Rodriguez, 46, for bigamy. She is accused of marrying three men without ever divorcing the first. Her daughter, Eunice Lopez, 26, was arrested last year on nine counts of the same.

Eurice Rodriguez's brother and sister are on the lam. Agents say Loida Rodriguez and Jesus Ruben Rodriguez are wanted on multiple counts of bigamy, too.

The family members, Cuban natives, are legal U.S. residents. Authorities believe they have been marrying undocumented migrants for money to help them earn legal U.S. residency.
