This lady, a babysitter could face jail next month after she faked a marriage to a Nigerian illegal immigrant so he could stay in the UK.
Emma Louise Evans, 34, confessed to taking part in a ‘marriage of convenience’ with Kazeem Kolade at Blackburn Register Office in July 2012.
Burnley Crown Court heard the sham marriage was later annulled so that Evans could genuinely marry her partner Stephen Akinseye, 45, another Nigerian, in January the following year.
Initially Evans was accused of two suspected sham marriages – the first to Kolade and the second to Mr Akinseye – as well as a third charge of bigamy.
Now prosecutors have accepted the second marriage was neither bigamous nor fake and dropped the second sham marriage allegation.
The court was not told of the whereabouts of Kolade – or whether he has now been booted out of Britain.
