Unbelievable - Riverside Man Poses as US Marshal and Deport Relative's Wife

I cannot believe this story our of Riverside County, but the story is being posted by the SF Chronicle.

A Riverside County man has pleaded not guilty to falsely deporting a relative's pregnant wife by posing as a U.S. marshal.

Gregory Denny of Hemet entered his plea Monday in San Diego federal court. He is accused of kidnapping, conspiracy and other crimes that carry potential life sentences. His wife Karen is accused of helping him carry out the alleged crime.

Prosecutors say Denny barged into his cousin's home in January to kidnap Cherriebelle Hibbard, who was waiting for a new green card.

The Dennys claimed she was in the U.S. illegally, drove her to San Diego and put her on a plane to the Philippines, where she remains.

Bail was set at $50,000 for Karen Denny, but the mother of three has not been released. Her husband is being held without bail.
