The Doctors share the story of a man who went to extreme lengths in order to pay for his wedding. We welcome Judge Mary Chrzanowski to helps us weigh in on the case of a man who reportedly robbed a bank to pay for his big day.
The Texas man turned himself over to authorities the day before his wedding for the alleged crime. Video footage of the man robbing the bank was shared on social media and the man's fiancee saw it and reportedly convinced him to come clean. Needless to say, the wedding did not take place and the man was charged with aggravated robbery, and he could potentially get a life sentence for the crime.
Judge Mary explains that because the man said he had a weapon, even if he didn't actually have one, that it could dramatically impact his sentence.
The Doctors note the average cost of a wedding in Texas where the man lives is a whopping $25,000 dollars, but the panel stresses crime is never the answer and encourages couples struggling to pay for their big day to consider choosing creative ways to cut costs and still have a meaningful ceremony and reception.
As for Judge Mary, the retired former judge says if she were presiding over the case, she feels the man would deserve a minimum of 5 years in jail, noting how his actions affected the people in the bank during the alleged crime.
