In North Carolina, a husband sued a guy for breaking up his marriage and stealing his wife -- and the court awarded him 8.8 million bucks.
Keith King sued his wife’s lover for destroying their “happy” marriage. King married his wife Danielle Swords in 2010 -- and they had a child together.
But then, back in 2015, Keith found some text messages between Danielle and Francisco Huizar III.
Eventually, her cheating ruined the marriage -- and Keith went on the offensive, suing Francisco for criminal conversation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress, assault and battery and alienation of affection.
It worked. Francisco was found guilty of being a “homewrecker” and now has to pay Keith $8.8 million, which includes $6.6 million in punitive damages.
