She has filed for divorce from a known Mexican Mafia member, Edward Dumbrique, whom she married last year in a ceremony at Corcoran State Prison. Edward Dumbrique is serving a life sentence for murder.

Rachael Dumbrique was sentenced Tuesday to a year in Sacramento County Jail, five years probation and ordered to pay up to $122,000 in restitution to the state of California.
