A teenager accused of entering a sham marriage with a Haitian national was yesterday granted $5,000 bail by a Supreme Court judge.
Bridney Johnson, 19, of Yellow Elder, was last week charged with entering into a fraudulent marriage with Willy Exama, 24, of Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
Prosecutors allege that Exama and Johnson obtained their marriage license on May 21 through fraud by false pretenses, entered a fraudulent marriage on the same date and attempted to commit fraud by false pretenses when they applied for a resident spousal permit on July 11.
Her bail application before Justice Renae McKay was not opposed by prosecutor Joel Seymour.
Bjorn Ferguson represented Johnson.
