A Boston area man who was formerly a Brockton police officer was indicted in federal court for green card marriage fraud and entering into a marriage to evade immigration laws. The former cop, a US citizen, had married a German citizen so that she could her green card. The wife has been indicted, as well as the woman who set the arrangement up. If found guilty, this green card marriage fraud can be punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The wife will likely be deported back to Germany after serving her sentence.
