Woman pleads guilty to 1 count of bigamy

August 13, 1993

A 28-year-old Reisterstown woman who married a Howard County man two years ago while she was still married to at least one other man pleaded guilty in Carroll Circuit Court yesterday to one count of bigamy.

Laura Lee Marsden could face up to nine years in state prison for the felony when she is sentenced by Circuit Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr. on Oct. 14.

According to court records, Marsden married Paul Ray Marsden, 25, in a Carroll County civil ceremony on June 28, 1991.

However, she was still married to William John Januska Jr., 31, of Reisterstown.

That marriage took place on Dec. 29, 1989 in Baltimore County.

Laura Marsden was arrested last December after Mr. Marsden discovered that she was still married to Mr. Januska and possibly one other Maryland man.
