Fox News reporting criminal charges placed against New Paltz Mayor Jason West for marrying gay couples without a licence...

FOX NEWS


Jason West faces 19 separate counts of solemnizing a marriage without a license, a misdemeanor under the domestic relations law, according to Ulster County District Attorney Donald Williams. Although West could face a maximum penalty of up to a year in jail, Williams said a jail term wasn't being contemplated at this point.

West performed wedding ceremonies for 25 gay couples on Friday, making him the second mayor in the country to perform same-sex marriages. More than 3,400 couples have been married in San Francisco.
