ImmigrationProf reported last April
that Mexican actress Fernanda Romero had been charged with marriage fraud and trying to gain legal residency and a work permit by marrying a U.S. citizen. A much-publicized trial, with testimony from former boyfriends, musicians, photographers, and a husband? about the alleged criminal conduct, was held last summer and ended in a mistrial.   Earlier this week, Romero pleaded guilty to lying on an immigration document and issued a public apology.  Sentencing will be in April.  LA Weekly has a more detailed -- and, yes, juicy -- story.
