CONNINGHAM, Australia, April 30 (UPI) -- An Australian man pleaded guilty to bigamy after his first wife saw his second wedding photo in a newspaper and went to the police.

Nicholas Trikilis, 44, of Conningham pleaded guilty to bigamy, forgery and giving false information in Hobart Magistrates Court, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported Friday.

Trikilis forged divorce papers and married his second wife in 2008, court records showed.

His first wife saw a wedding photo he submitted to a local newspaper and reported him to police.

Magistrate Michael Daly sentenced Trikilis to six months in prison, which was suspended for five years, and ordered him to pay a fine of more than $1,800.
