Jeremiah Travis Scudder, who was free on his own recognizance, had previously pleaded guilty in Kenton Circuit Court to the felony that is punishable by one year to five years in prison.
In May, Scudder told an Enquirer reporter that he was in the process of filing for divorce from his first wife. Scudder said at the time that it was "childish and stupid" not to get the divorce and he regretted the trouble it has caused.
Authorities got suspicious after Scudder told his probation officer that he had been married twice but the official couldn't find a record of him ever getting a divorce in Kentucky, according to the criminal complaint.
He married Constance Holden nine years ago in Campbell County and Teri Mae Hutchinson August 2008 in Kenton County, according to court records. Scudder's first wife, with whom he has a son, told investigators that they separated about a year ago and never divorced.
Scudder is described as white, 6-feet-1, 150 pounds, with green eyes and brown hair.
It is the second bigamy case that has been prosecuted in Kenton County in recent times.
The first was in 1999 when Barbara Moore was convicted for being married to three men at once. Her first husband tipped police, and they arrested Moore right after her third wedding.
Her three-year sentence was conditionally discharged if she completed several requirements, including divorcing her first two husbands, according to a court clerk. Similar to parole, conditional discharge requires offenders to comply with certain provisions in exchange for not serving time in prison.
