JONESBORO, AR (abc24.com) - The former Oakland mayor is in hiding. This week Randall Scott Ferguson’s third wife filed a complaint of bigamy against him. According to Crittenden County investigators, she had no idea he was already married.

Ferguson resigned as mayor in early March. Now, Ferguson is staying with his father in Jonesboro. I gave his family the news that he may be going to jail, soon. I tried to get answers on why he married two women.

Scott Ferguson’s brother, Brian, answered the door when I knocked. “Hi I’m Jackie with abc24 news. Is Scott Ferguson here?”

“Yes he is, I’ll be right back to get him,” said Brian Ferguson.

One minute later, he told me his brother wasn’t home.

“Uh, he’s not here right now so he won’t be able to talk with you,” he said. I then asked him, “Does he know there will be a warrant issued for his arrest as late as tomorrow?” Brian responded, “Um, no, but if it is he’ll take care of it.”

I then told him his brother was going to be charged with bigamy and Brian Ferguson said, “Yeah, he’ll definitely take care of it, he’s not allowed to talk to ya’ll right now.”

It seems like I broke the news to the Ferguson family that Scott may be facing a Class A misdemeanor charge of bigamy. His third wife, Miguelina Mora of Cordova, filed a complaint Monday at the Crittenden County Sherriff’s Office. The couple was married on Valentine’s Day in Marion, all while Scott was still married to his second wife, Lori, the mother of his four children.

Neighbors say Scott Ferguson moved to Jonesboro with his dad and brothers a few weeks ago. His trailer is still parked out back. Neighbors never expected the 33-year-old to have multiple wives.

“That’s very shocking for me,” said neighbor Michelle Downs. “They’re wonderful nice people, the two kids I have talked to are very good kids, very polite.”

They should be, the family is very religious. In fact, Scott’s father, Jimmy Ferguson, is a minister at Nettleton Church of Christ in Jonesboro. His father was there for Bible Study night but refused to speak with us about his son. The family didn’t seem too worried that Scott may be facing jail time.

“He will take care of all of that,” said Brian Ferguson.

Crittenden County deputies say they may issue the warrant for Ferguson’s arrest as early as Thursday morning. If convicted, the maximum penalty is 11 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
