    Shipman, of Wilmington, was reportedly married at the time of her trysts with Ison, and married the 19-year-old six days after divorcing her husband of 19 years.

    At the time of the betrothal, Simpson was facing 15 years for statutory rape and taking indecent liberties with a child, in connection with her previous sexual relationship with Ison.

    That's one way to get them to stop having sex.

    He's 19 now. They were married in Jan 2011, when the victim was 17.

    And he had his mother's permission to do so.

    Not that I expect the Daily Mail to be up on the fine points of Tar Heel geography, but Wilmington is in New Hanover County, not Brunswick.

    Why is the Daily Mail breaking this. The Wilmington paper fold?
