After discovering that the accusations were true, days later Plaismond went to the local sheriff’s office to report her husband’s crime. She gave police a copy of their old marriage license and the new one. Plaismond and Celicourt have two children together.
In the official police report, the couple’s daughter said:
"When it became time for the announcements on the altar, they announced that my father 'Patrick Celicourt' was newly married to another woman while still being married."Celicourt was arrested and now faces charges of bigamy and making false official statements. It is unclear whether Celicourt’s new wife was aware of his marriage to Plaismond. He was arrested Wednesday on a warrant, booked and then released on bail.
