CODY, WYOMING- There was no touching of hands or even an "I Do" kiss during a wedding ceremony in a courtroom for Israel Silva and his bride.

He wore prison orange and his new wife stood 15-feet away with him in shackles. That's to comply with the jail's "no contact" rules.

Instead of a honeymoon, Silva was off to prison since he was sentenced to six to ten years by the same judge that married him right after the ceremony.

Silva was convicted of a drunken crime spree where he stole two pickups, crashed one, fired shots at other cars and led police on a chase of 110-miles per hour.
