Aberdeen bigamist Kenneth O'Connor gets restriction order

An Aberdeen man who admitted bigamy after tying the knot with his girlfriend while still married has been handed a restriction of liberty order.

Kenneth O'Connor, 50, wed his second wife at the city's Mannofield Parish Church in 2009.

O'Connor said he had had multiple sclerosis for 21 years and thought he was divorced. He has also split from his second wife.

He received a three-month order at Aberdeen Sheriff Court.

Sheriff Graeme Napier said: "Most people know whether they are married or divorced."

He ordered O'Connor to stay indoors at his home address for three months from 20:00 until 06:00.
