NEWBERRY, SC (WIS) - A Newberry woman pleaded guilty last week to bigamy, admitting to having several husbands at once.

Police say Felicia Bookman, 47, has been married to six men over the past 30 years, without divorcing any of them. Lt. Kevin Atkins said one of Bookman's husbands lives in Newberry, and filed charges against her.

Bookman was sentenced to 70 days in jail for the crime. Atkins said Bookman's other husbands live outside the Midlands, and can also file charges against her.

Atkins said he couldn't remember the last time a bigamy case was prosecuted in Newberry.
