(EVANSVILLE) - An Evansville woman will spend 30 days in jail for claiming in court that she was her son's wife.
25-year-old Christopher Crowe was in court recently to plead guilty to four felony counts including residential entry and domestic battery.
During the hearing, the judge asked if Crowe's wife agreed with the plea deal. Crowe's mother, 47-year-old Rebecca Crowe, stood up, said she was Crowe's wife and said the plea agreement was OK.
Later, Vanderburgh County Deputy Prosecutor Anna Clutter discovered Rebecca Crowe's identity when she saw a picture of Christopher Crowe's wife, a much younger woman.
