Mexican-born actress has marriage fraud court date

LOS ANGELES, May 10, 2010 (AP): A Mexican-born actress is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Los Angeles on charges that she had a phony marriage.

Twenty-eight-year-old Fernanda Romero and 28-year-old Kent Ross are accused of marriage fraud. Each could face up to five years in federal prison if convicted.

Authorities contend that Romero paid Ross to marry her in 2005 in order to become a U.S. resident but that the two never lived together.

An investigation began after Romero's ex-boyfriend, fashion photographer Markus Klinko, told immigration authorities her marriage was a sham.


Romero has had roles in several small films, including last year's ``Drag Me to Hell.'' She's better-known in Mexico, where she appeared in the TV Azteca soap ``Eternamente Tuya.''
