PORT ORCHARD, Wash. — A Washington man pleaded guilty to forging his wife’s signature on divorce papers.

The Kitsap Sun reports Brian Kimmell’s now-former wife, Cassie Kimmell, says she was mystified why he would go behind her back as they had agreed to divorce.

The best she could figure was that in March 2015 — about eight months before Brian Kimmell allegedly forged his documents — social media posts showed he had gotten married to another woman even though he was still married to her. Screenshots of the posts were included in the Port Orchard police file.

Felony forgery and perjury charges were filed in May 2017.

Brian Kimmell pleaded guilty March 1 to the first-degree perjury charge and was sentenced to six months of home detention, which he was authorized to serve at his residence in Texas.
