Convicted bigamist has bond revoked in Calumet County

CHILTON, WI (WTAQ) - A convicted bigamist will stay in jail in Calumet County, where he'll be sentenced in almost two months for forgery.

46-year-old Tim Swinea of Weston had his bond revoked Monday, after he was arrested Sunday in New London on a warrant for missing a sentencing hearing on January 21st.

Swinea was convicted in that case of taking thousands of dollars from his ex-girlfriend's company in a bad check scheme.

Last year, Swinea spent four months in Marathon County Jail for bigamy. That was after a former wife from the Wausau area learned that he was also married at the time to a Missouri woman who had three of his kids.

He later skipped out on a court appearance just before he was to stand trial in Calumet County. A warrant was issued in late August -- and the state issued another warrant against Swinea in November, for violating the terms of his Marathon County probation.

The victim of the check-kiting scheme in Calumet County said last year that she meet Swinea online, and she almost married him.
