Brigitte Van Nice, a deputy clerk in a rural Iowa county, is expected to plead not guilty to filing an illegal Iowa marriage certificate.

Joab Penney and Joseph Parker of Florida said a Google search led them to Van Nice, who mailed them a marriage license application and told the couple they could marry in Iowa without coming to the state.

Van Nice, who has an ordination certificate from an online ministry program, received $150 to marry Penney and Parker. She told colleagues that she performed the ceremony at the truck stop where she had met the couple in February. The men said they never stepped foot in Iowa, one of 6 states where gay couples can legally marry.

Penney, 28, learned that he was not legally married when he contacted an attorney to get a divorce.

“I was pretty upset,” he told the AP. “What she did was wrong.”

Van Nice is accused of forging the signatures of two witnesses on the marriage certificate. A criminal prosecutor this week added a criminal count of tampering with records to the two counts of forgery and one count of perjury Van Nice already faces.

According to the AP, Van Nice's attorney said Tuesday that she'll plead not guilty in coming days.
