By WKTV News

(WKTV) - A Richfield Springs man is accused of bigamy after authorities say he never legally divorced his first wife.

Richard Lee Streeter, 68, of County Highway 24 in Richfield Springs, is charged with bigamy. He was arrested Tuesday afternoon.

According to the Otsego County Sheriff's Office, a complaint was received from Streeter's estranged wife -- who is a former New York state resident -- that the two married in 1978 and separated in the 1990s. She alleged that shortly after they separated, he married another woman in Arizona. Streeter never legally divorced the woman.

Streeter was issued an appearance ticket. If convicted, he faces up to four years in prison.
