What a lucky break!
Looks like Kody Brown and his Sister Wives won't be convicted after all.
Law enforcement officials say that polygamous families in Utah typically don't get prosecuted because they don't have enough resources and evidence to go after the families.
The only time polygamous families are targeted is when a more serious crime is involved such as marrying underaged girls, false imprisonment, or anything violent.
Jeff Buhman, from the Utah County Attorney's office, says, "In my experience … there has never been a traditional polygamist family charged with the sole crime of bigamy."
Kody Brown better thank his lucky stars (and hope he doesn't have a criminal past) because looks like he and his multiple wives will be off the hook.
