Va. woman sentenced for embezzling money from 10th husband

A Gloucester, Va. woman has been sentenced for embezzling money from her 10th husband.

Shirley Smith-Smart pleaded guilty in June to taking more than $11,000 from Kenneth Smart’s bank account.

The Daily Press reports that Visiting Judge Joseph E. Spruill sentenced Smith-Smart to five years in prison on Tuesday in Gloucester County Circuit Court. If she pays restitution, she will only serve one year.

Smith-Smart is already serving a year in Western Tidewater Regional Jail on a bigamy conviction. In January, she entered an Alford plea to a bigamy charge in Isle of Wight. The charge stemmed from the eighth of her 10 marriages. Prosecutors say she was already married when she wed again.
