Cal Ripken Jr. marries Judge Laura Kiessling
Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Laura Kiessling and Cal Ripken Jr., the Baltimore Orioles Hall of Famer, married over the weekend, according to a Ripken spokesman. The couple has been dating for more than a year, since Ripken, 58, moved to Annapolis. The spokesman confirmed that the couple is living in the area, but declined to provide details of their wedding. Kiessling, 54, changed her name this week to reflect her marriage status, identifying herself on the Circuit Court website as the Hon. Laura S. Ripken, administrative judge for the 5th Judicial Circuit. She could not be reached for comment at her offices in Annapolis on Friday, although the Circuit Court building directory has been updated to reflect her name change. A spokesman for the former shortstop confirmed last summer that the couple had been dating for a few months after they attended an Orioles game in July. Cal Ripken and his former wife, Kelly Ripken, divorced in April 2016 after nearly 30 years of marriage. Hur also said officials were able to prosecute Hall without requiring the victims to testify because they had photo and video evidence. According to a plea agreement, Hall began traveling to the Philippines in 2006 to engage in sexual conduct with a 16-year-old girl, and went on to produce images of other girls as young as 12.
