A Ugandan man who helped arrange a scam marriage in Maine so another man could become a legal permanent resident of the United States is going to jail. A judge on Friday sentenced Ronald Serunjogi, 35, of Saco, to four months in jail and four months of home confinement. Serunjogi was convicted of helping another Ugandan man, Sampson Sengoonzi, who had overstayed his tourist visa, pay a Lewiston woman to marry Sengoonzi. Serunjogi was also accused of assisting Sengoonzi in preparing immigration documents. (AP)
