BELLEVILLE, Ill. - With help from a judge, David Kite got five years in prison and a life partner.

After sentencing Kite on Wednesday to prison for stealing a lawnmower from a home, St. Clair County Circuit Judge John Baricevic obliged the 23-year-old man's request and married him to girlfriend Victoria Smith in the same courtroom.

The groom sported an orange jumpsuit, shackles and handcuffs during the five-minute civil ceremony; the bride had on a T-shirt and sweat pants.

Maybe they heard only spouses are allowed for conjugal visits.
