Stud to pay Sh884m for ‘tuning’ married woman

For some people, the pursuit of happiness and love is worth risking it all, even if it means having an extramarital affair. But sometimes, you might be risking a lot more than you realise.

For example, Texas resident Francisco Huizar III had a 16-month affair with Danielle Swords, the wife of Keith King. When the relationship was discovered, it ended up costing Francisco a whopping $8.8 million (Sh884 million)!

Francisco and Danielle’s initial meeting occurred in 2015 at a company bike show in Texas, where Francisco had been working. At the time, Danielle had been married to Keith for over five years. But this didn’t stop the torrid affair from happening.

In fact, Francisco often went to see Danielle- on Keith’s dime. After making the first move on Danielle, Francisco then followed her around faithfully, renting out a hotel room near the King house, joining her on a spa day (Keith’s treat), and staying in a hotel near Danielle when she went on a birthday trip (again, Keith’s treat).

However, the couple’s bliss didn’t last long. Keith soon noticed inappropriate texts going on between the two, and confronted Francisco. The confrontation became violent, with Francisco putting Keith in a choke-hold. He was later charged with assault and battery.

Keith lives in North Carolina, a state where it is legal to sue the third party for “alienation of affection”, or knowingly engaging in extramarital affairs. He also brought a barrage of evidence to court, including call logs, hotel receipts, and social media posts.
