A Melbourne man has pleaded guilty to entering a marriage with a 14-year-old bride.
Mohammad Shakir, 34, is charged with going through a formal ceremony of marriage with a person not of marriageable age at Noble Park last September.
As part of the plea, two charges were withdrawn by prosecutors in the Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, including allegations Shakir had sex with the girl between September 30 and October 1, 2016, following their wedding.
The ceremony was conducted in Noble Park by former imam Ibrahim Omerdic, 61, who also faces charges relating to the illegal marriage.
He will front court in May for a contested hearing.
