East Texas man guilty of assault gets life...in matrimony
TYLER, TX - An East Texas man who pleaded guilty to assaulting his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend has been sentenced to life - in matrimony.
KLTV-TV reports 21-year-old Josten Bundy pleaded guilty on July 2 to assault with bodily injury for a February fistfight with the ex-boyfriend of 19-year-old Elizabeth Jaynes.
Bundy tells the Tyler television station that the man "had been saying disrespectful things" about Jaynes, so he challenged him to a fight and punched him twice in the jaw.
Smith County Court-at-Law Judge Randall Rogers sentenced Bundy to probation on the condition that he marry Jaynes within 30 days. Otherwise, it would be 15 days in jail.
Reluctantly, Bundy and Jaynes applied for their marriage license and scheduled a date with a justice of the peace.
