Jesus married 18-year old Jesus Anaya on 29 July 1913 in Tucson, Arizona. Their marriage was short-lived, and she filed for divorce in mid 1915, perhaps after he pled guilty to grand larceny in 1914.

I thought this might have been the end of the story on Jesus and his former wife Jesus Anaya. However, when I was running searches within Newspapers.com, I uncovered a 1915 scandal involving Jesus Anaya, which became a sensational court case involving accusations of perjury, a jailhouse wedding, violations of immigration law, a prison break and more. The story is too crazy not to cover on the blog. I will write about this in the posts to follow.
