What is the punishment for bigamy in ca?

Bigamy is a crime but it is rarely prosecuted these days. Bigamy is "formally entering into a marriage while the previous one is un-dissolved". So that if one spouse remains married, and tries to enter into a second marriage, this is considered bigamous and the second marriage is declared void and grounds for an annulment. Therefore, one who knowingly enters into a bigamous marriage is guilty of the crime of bigamy. In practice however, bigamy is seldom prosecuted unless it is part of a fraudulent scheme to get another's property or to commit some other felony.
