For more than a year, KLTV has been investigating the allegations by several East Texas men that they were all married to the same woman at the same time. Now, that woman has been sentenced to four years in prison, according to Gregg County Officials.

Candice Andrade, 32 of Kilgore, was arrested in Gregg County on November 15, 2012, and released the same day.

In June of 2011, two men said they discovered they were all  married to Andrade at the same time. They told KLTV they found a third husband in Houston. In November 2011, they discovered a fourth.

The men claimed Andrade left their marriages and themselves in shambles. One claimed Andrade was "going from guy to guy, ripping them off."

In June of 2012, KLTV sat down with an exclusive interview with Andrade. She claimed she never stole anything from the men. She also claimed she left two of the marriages because of abuse, and that she filed divorce papers for all of the marriages.

When asked if she knew she was committing bigamy, Andrade said, "I did know." Andrade said she has a medical condition that causes memory lapse.
