WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Jamaican woman has been sentenced to two years of probation and could be deported for entering into a sham marriage with a Fort Riley soldier to get legal immigration status.

U.S. District Judge Monti Belot also ordered 28-year-old Shannakay Hunter to reimburse the U.S. Army $2,600 for medical services she wasn't entitled to receive.

Hunter was convicted in August of conspiracy to commit marriage fraud, marriage fraud and lying to the government. She had faced up to five years in prison on each count.

The man she married, former Army Pvt. Joshua Priest, was sentenced in the case to 10 months for conspiracy to commit marriage fraud and wire fraud. He testified against his wife at her trial.

Hunter now lives in New York City.
