BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Two Romanian nationals living in Boise have been fined $2,000 and face deportation for entering into fraudulent marriages to obtain immigration benefits.

U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson says 32-year-old Victor Fenesan pleaded guilty in August to fraudulently obtaining a U.S. Visa while 34-year-old Claudia Beian pleaded guilty to unlawful procurement of citizenship. They were sentenced to two years’ probation Monday by U.S. District Judge Edward Lodge, who said they also would be subject to U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.

The plea agreements in the case say Fenesan and Beian admitted marrying U.S. citizens in 2004 to obtain immigration benefits. Neither resided with their spouses, but continued to live with each other. Both received Visas in April 2005 and Beian obtained citizenship in February 2010. Lodge revoked Beian’s citizenship.
