Sister Wives Polygamy Lawsuit

Phew! No charges will be filed against Kody Brown and his four wives!

The case against the polygamous family featured on Sister Wives has been dismissed, Utah prosecutors announced. In 2010 authorities had investigated charges of bigamy against Kody Brown and wives Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn, but the case is now closed.

Court papers explain the county has adopted the same policy as the state in regrads to bigamy and would not pursue criminal charges unless evidence exists of a victim or fraud. The family has 17 children among them, and was made popular by the TLC reality show that fascinated America.

The Browns’ attorney, Jonathan Turley, said they were “pleased that charges wouldn’t be filed” but have no plans to withdraw the lawsuit they filed against the county when they moved to Las Vegas.

Then move back to your old house in Utah. You are free to go back home and pick up where you left off. That would make all the kids happy.
Add another wing on the house and bam, you got it!
