Nancy Grace Wants Sister Wives' Kody Behind Bars!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsLegal MattersReality TV

nancy grace thinks that kody from sister wives belongs in jail

Nancy Grace has issues with the cast of TLC's reality show Sister Wives…especially Kody, the show's lead male who has four wives.

Here's what Nancy Grace had to say about bigamy charges that have come up against Kody:

Utah does recognize common law marriage, but in this case bigamy trumps common law. He should go to jail.

Here's Nancy on the show being used as evidence against Kody:

Video evidence is the best evidence. The cameras don’t lie. But forget what’s aired, there’s a mountain of unaired footage that will come into evidence too.

Nancy on what would happen to the family's children if Kody went to jail:

If found guilty, the children could be removed. Historically with so many polygamous families in the state the children won’t be removed unless abuse is shown.

On whether or not Kody, or his wives, could in fact go to jail:

The law is the law — bigamy is a 3rd degree felony in Utah. Those participating in the crime face a maximum of five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. But most likely, Utah will turn a blind eye, as usual.

Nancy on what proof would be necessary to put Kody, or the Sister Wives, behind bars:

That someone already married, purports to marry or co-habitate with another in addition to their spouse — or?? — If you know the other has a husband or wife and purport to marry or co-habitate with them, that’s also a crime.

And finally, what Nancy Grace thinks will happen to Kody and the Sister Wives:

When you don’t know a horse, look at his track record. Even with the family taunting authorities on national TV, it’s unlikely Utah will prosecute although clearly, they should!

Looks like SOMEBODY won't be ordering Season One of Sister Wives when it comes out on DVD on December 7th!

Do U agree with Nancy Grace? Should Kody go to jail? How about the Sister Wives?

    I think people need to let it go. Why on Earth are they so damn concerned with how many wives he has? They all seem to be ok with it.. Hes not forcing anyone to do anything they havent as ADULTS consented to. Is your life that boring that you have to try to stir the pot all the time? This nancy person needs a damn muzzle. No one gives to shits about your opinion. And perez your so boring now.. Wlda thought with all your "equality" for all shizz you would have something more clever to say.

  2. 2

    Well technically if he is not married to all of them right? I don't think some one should go to jail because their wife lets them commit open adultery. With three other women. Yea, it's kinda weird.

  3. 3

    Oh Nancy …. put your skirt down!
    He's legally married to one and only one of them; his first wife.

  4. 4

    Though I'm very confused about why anyone would participate in polygamy, I'd be a hypocrite if I was against it. I am very supportive of gay marriage, as I believe you have the right to marry who you love. So I guess if you love 4 women, go marry them.

  5. 5

    I wish Nancy Grace went mute.

  6. 6

    i didnt know he wasnt technically married to all of them…well anyways the kidds seem fine and adjusted to it and from the few clips ive seen it doesnt seem that there forcing there lifestyle on the kidds cuz one of the girls is like ya i wouldnt want to be married this way and they seem fine with it….but people have different views on things and i guess its just to ones liking…plus i give him props for being able to handle and keep up one four marriages and all them kidds most people cant keep up with one marriage…lol plus the way the house is built is pretty cool…id like a house like that for my inlaws….hahahah

  7. 7

    Grossiest collection of people ever. All the woman are fat and completely unkept. And he looks ridiculous with that hair. Plus he acts like a spoiled little boy. So unattractive. Just love how he drives around a tiny little sports car while the wives drive big suv's. Time to grow up Kody!

  8. 8

    Nancy Grace and Gloria Allred need to get married they will live miserably after after being angry, judging, suing, and condemning the whole world!

  9. 9

    If he is breaking the law in Utah, it should be addressed. It sickens me that he can "marry 4 women" and yet same sex marriage is still illegal.

  10. 10

    Nancy Grace is right. This is against the law. Period.

  11. 11

    This is really so silly. I understand having polygamy laws to protect the innocent when an already married person goes out and tries to lead a double life by "marrying" another person and having two families and such. But in a situation where all of the people involved are legal, consenting adults…this is just rediculous and such a waste of valuable resources. Honestly, let people marry who they want, what sex they want, however many people as they want. If it's between consenting adults, it's none of my business.

  12. 12

    nancy grace needs to die

  13. 13

    I don't agree with this at all. What happened to "Eqaulity for all" ??? If everyone wants to allow homosexual marriage and homosexuals adopting children and what not. Then sorry but polygamy shouldn't be an issue. Unless abuse and underage marriage is involved. These people are adults and obviously know what they want from life and if being married to a man with 3 other wives, Who are we to judge???? Equality for everyone people this is what the homo's bitched for so now get on the band wagon and stop being hypocrites!

  14. 14

    Please leave this family alone. Personally I would not stand to be married to a man who has another wife. But these women are sane and that is the choice they have made. Their children seem to be healthy and well adjusted and they have so much love and attention. Let me add that so MANY conventional families in the USA never give so much love and attention to their kids. So please do not judge them. Let them be. This family is very loving. Back off Nancy Grace, and go fry other fish. Really.

  15. 15

    Ummm…there is no comparison between same sex marriage and polygamy. Totally horses of a different color. I have watched the show and it is appalling. Kody is a jerk and if he lived anywhere else, outside Utah, he wouldn't have even 1 wife. NG is correct. It is illegal and Utah, which seems to govern itself, will not prosecute. I.E., Warren Jeffs.

  16. 16

    booze and hotpants!

  17. 17

    I could care less how many wives this loser has but does the world really need more of Kody's kids? Seriously! Who is paying the bill for all those damn kids? I don't believe him and first wife working alone can support all those kids.

  18. 18

    Geez give these people a break. Seriously if there is no sign of abuse why wouldn't you want people to have the freedom to live their lives the way they choose. It's like people find the littlest things to keep people from being happy. We have parents out there who provide little supervision to their kids and allow them to go out and cause all kinds of trouble in their communities. And then we have this family with 4 mothers who love their children and make sure that they are always supervised and cared for. I don't know about the rest of you but it sounds like a pretty good household for a child to be raised in if you ask me.

  19. 19

    They may be consenting adults, but when you are raised in that environment, and if you leave it you are shunned and have nothing, it is more coercion than consent. It is a practice that forces women into an extremely subservient role - they may say they 'consent' to it, but it doesn't really matter what the women say does it? The women have no say at all.

  20. 20

    My only issue with polygamy is that it's always one man having multiple wives, while one woman can't have multiple husbands. Apart from that, anything that goes on between consenting adults, regardless of their number and/or gender is their business and the thought to prosecute or persecute them because of it is ridiculous and hypocritical. Apparently according to the so-called "law" (oh, gee, once it was against the law for a pair of gay man to be in a relationship. Society has this way of doing away with stupid laws once it outgrows them - get over it), it's beyond hypocritical. It's not alright for a man to cheat on his wife by co-habiting with his lover, but it's perfectly fine to cheat on his wife behind her back and eeeeeeeeeeveryone pretend he's the loyal husband? PUHLEEEASE, give me a break. This law only tries to uphold the image of the one man/one woman marriage, rather than its actual substances. Pathetic AND hipocritical.

  21. 21

    They were so stupid to agree to be on a reality show. Who breaks the law, and films it? I hope the "law" goes after them. We are a land of laws not men. And besides, the wives are being degraded by this relationship, and whether or not they've agreed to this arrangement, it's against US law and natural law as well.

  22. 22

    Isn't it against the law to profit from your "crime". Take them off the air and be done with it

  23. 23

    I think Nancy Grace has been sucking on lemons her entire life. She's just a mean, nasty busy-body whose has no real life of her own. I feel sorry for her kids…they are going to grow up being paranoid and haters…just watch!

  24. 24

    Re: DogTown – I second that comment! ;-)

  25. 25

    Re: MsJules – Read a book sweetheart, polygamy is against the law!

  26. 26

    Yes cause sending those kids dad to prison would do them so much good. Seriously this is as stupid as putting parents in jail for not going to conferences. We need to put criminals in jail not a bunch of conscenting adults who choose to live differently than we do. Prisons are crowded enough. So what let a murderer out to make room for Kody. Yep that makes sense.

  27. 27

    Nancy Grace has terminal panties in a bunch syndrome. So what if the guy has one legal wife and three other women who are in a wife role with him? If it works for them then what's the problem? What about that Christian guy who keeps impregnating his wife with the 20 kids and counting TV show? He thinks he has a god given right to her body to do with what he sees fit. Where's Nancy's call on that one? This is really none of Nancy Grace's business.

  28. 28

    I think Nancy should be more concerned with things that really effect us like bullying and teens killing themselves. You know what the Sister Wives look happier then most wives and so do the children. I think some one needs to shut that bitch up.

  29. 29

    it's creepy, weird, bizarre, but who gives a flying fuck in a rolling donut? It's not like he's sneaking around with a wife in one state and another in another state and they don't know each other. They all entered into this as willing participants. Nancy needs to STFU and get a life.

  30. 30

    There is only one wife. The other three are common law. He did not register to marry or have an "official" wedding with four women, so there is no here. It is a case of a one way open marriage for consenting adults. One wife, three mistresses. If he were keeping three women on the side without his wife's knowlege, it would not be considered a crime. Adultry is not illegal in this country, nor is having children by a woman other than your wife, so Nancy needs to stfu. Those children are provided and cared for and have life so much better than some. She needs to let well enough alone or she will blow apart the stable homes those children have.

  31. 31

    This is probably the first and only time I'll agree with Nancy. That husband's a pig and the wives are stupid.No self esteem

  32. 32

    Re: the OG jersey girl – How is this any different from same sex marriage? This is just another example of an alternative lifestyle from the "norm" being harshly criticized by people who think they understand what goes on in a home once the doors are closed. There are kids whose parents are absentees, drug dealers, gang bangers, and prostitutes and you're going to condemn a family consisting of 4 loving mothers and a loving dad because you think it's weird? You say the way this family lives is wrong because you think "Kody is a jerk"? Stop glorifying the alternative lifestyles you agree with while disparaging those you don't and try adopting an all-or-nothing ideology.

  33. 33

    And Perez, why must you be such a massive hypocrite? You labeled this entry as "icky icky poo"? What the hell is wrong with you? You're on this anti-bullying crusade, yet you classify plural marriage as "icky icky poo". If someone said that about gay marriage you'd shit a brick.

  34. BGSLC says – reply to this


    They will not be prosecuted unless: a. they received state/federal welfare benefits fraudulently (like saying dad is out of the home) or b. they actually filed for multiple marriages or common law marriage certificates (common law marriage is not recognized in Utah unless they have declared it). This is not as uncommon in Utah as the state would like to portray, nor is it illegal as long as they have not involved any government entities in their living choices.

  35. 35

    This show is so degrading to women.

  36. 36

    I say leave them alone to make more wonderful TV. Do you see there house and that mans car. I would love to sign up for 4 husbands, passing room to room getting a kiss and maybe a gift to try to one up the other husbands. With my tubes tied we could all have fun for hours not worrying about babies.

  37. 37

    Generally bigamy is marrying 2 people and they don't know about each other. That is what's against the law. Poltgamy is marrying multiple wives and all knowing of each other's existances. They are all happy and seem to be normal people … they just live an unnormal way.

  38. 38

    Re: DogTown – Nancy Grace is married.

  39. 39

    For once, Nancy Grace is absolutely right. Gay marriage might not be recognized, but it's not illegal. Polygamy is blatantly illegal, and the entire situation is degrading to women. Kody and his dumbass 'wives' knew this, and chose to go on the air anyway. Hit them with the law.

  40. 40

    I don't see how this family is worse than men who go out to bars and bring home a different woman every night. That is not against the law, but a loving, caring family who support each other is a felony. Nancy Grace will say anything to keep her shiteous show in the news. Boo Negative Nancy!

    Re: cbchicago – I'll say it
    Gay marriage is icky icky POOOOOO

  42. 42

    Well I do agree with Nancy Grace. I've watched the show. They are all likeable people but clearly they ARE breaking the law. Yes, he's married to ONLY one wife but WTH is with other 3. Doing a reality show is thumbing their noses at our government. Polygamy is outlawed in our country. Kody is a citizen and should abide by the constitution just like most of us law-abiding citizens do. He disgusts me with his Buster Brown haircut and smirky smile as he drives away for a date in a tiny sports car to meet his potential 4th wife. This is some kind of sicko. Sure the children are clean, educated and well taken care of but that's they only lifestyle they know. It's wrong. We're not living the Old Testament rules anymore!

    According to Meri and the interview they did on Oprah, Meri lost her job because of the show. So only Janelle works, and I think Robyn found a job after she moved. I read online that some poly families get welfare as single mothers. Not saying that's what the Browns are doing, just what is common.

  47. 47

    You people actually want the government to control your personal lives? Pathetic.

    He wants to do it. They want to do it. They are consenting adults. That's the end of it.

    Re: Ky Cat

    To sum up, they're self-reliant, their children are educated and clean, they're happy, and they're nice, but what they are doing is wrong because I am told it's wrong.

  48. 48

    I do not agree with Nancy Grace. Kody should not be sent to jail. He is legally married to his first wife only. If consenting adults choose to live this lifestyle, it is their own business and the government should not get involved. While I personally would not choose to live in polygamy, I don't believe judgement should be passed on anyone who does. As long as there is no abuse going on, and he is being honest with all these women I don't understand why this would be considered a crime.

  49. 49

    The whole thought of polygamy is revolting to me. Maybe it's because I didn't grow up around a bunch of FLDS types?! I on the other hand grew up where homosexuality is everywhere and I am completely fine with it, so I don't understand why I feel so weird towards polygamy. Maybe it's because there are genuine hurt feelings and children involved!? They are consulting adults, but it still gives me the heebie jeebies. I do think that Cody is a complete pig to sit there and hear one of his wives talk about how upset she was that he kissed over the alter and he looks all upset but still doesn't care about her feelings. Blah. Talk about an egomaniac - because what he really wants (besides fame) is a huge brood of children.

  50. 50

    Well the law is the law I guess. But I don't think there is anything wrong with polygamy. That will probably be the next civil rights issue after the gay marriage gets legalized.

  51. 51

    Nancy Grace is a disgrace to educated people world wide. She is a mouth piece that needs to be wired shut. All this woman does is take crap and bring up race . Why doesn't she mind her own business. So sick of these people on TV.

  52. 52

    Not sure of the law, but I'd lock up Kody for being a egomaniac. It's clear this lifestyle is ONLY about him and his needs. Gotta love his Lexus sportscar while one of them drives an old sedan with duct-tape holding the driver's side window in place. Gross and gross.

  53. 53

    Re: just a piece of meat – Couldn't agree more that Kody is a blue ribbon swine. It IS all about him. That lifestyle gives me the creeps because I can't imagine sharing a partner like that. One night he's with one, the next he's with another. There's not enough time to get the ick off of him and I am sure they can detect the other women's scent. YUCK. As gross as it is, it's not illegal to be married to one woman and keep a stable of mistresses under the same roof. Unless those children are being mistreated, who is to say that lifestyle harms them?

  54. 54

    man if if there is a person i think should die a nasty death its nancy grace.

    she is a horrible person.

    she always talks about bad moms. abd she has twins but somehow she is always on tv and never at home but she claims she is the best mommy ever.
    i bet she has never even held her kids. she pays nannys for that

  55. Tinc says – reply to this


    Yeah,it's is just weird!!!I bet the kids will be scared for life with family like this.But technically they are not official married.Officially he is only married to his first wife and other ones just live there.

  56. 56

    Nancy, get the f*** over it! It's not bigamy. He's legally married to ONE woman. His children are being raised in a loving, non-abusive environment and his wives are consenting adults. Why would Utah want to remove children from that environment, when there are children actually being abused in the state? Shut up, Nancy.
    Re: rosebud99 – You obviously haven't watched the show. Several of their children have said they wouldn't be having plural marriages, and their parents were supportive of them. The women have no say? They all went into the marriage by their own choice! His second wife was shunned from her family because she decided to have a plural marriage. You're speaking of the type of polygamists that marry off children, not this family.

  57. 57

    Nancy Grace is a twat.

  58. hubb says – reply to this


    I would never be able to be in a polygamous family. But I don't think it's right for me to judge people who want to live this way. All I keep wondering is if it were a female with multiple husbands, would people object more?

  59. 59

    but Nancy how will America ever entertain itself. Maybe he get a few husbands in jail lool

No one fights for polygamy but people of different sexes fight and when they finally win one someone takes it away. Shame on this state for not enforcing the law if Kody was married to men they would so sad

    Re: freak – haha so aren't some start marriages however if you allow gay couples who love eahc other to make a commitment vow and able to have rights as a couple it would be ok with me. Why should we tell people who they can be with ???? Its not our place !!!

  66. 66

    i think that there are bigger fish to fry in this world other then a man that clearly takes care of his family and may have a couple wives. Who truley gives a hoot. No one has proven any sort of abuse toward the children and if you actually watch the show the kids are very well adjusted and are told and preached to constanly that they do NOT have to live this life style that it is a choice. So let deal with important stuff and leave this family alone

  67. 67

    Leave these people alone, damn…

  68. 68

    Only in Utah can you rub it in everyone's face for breaking the law. That State is so messed up morally & ethically it's insane. Are we all dumb, does he really think that we'll believe they aren't "really" married? America as a whole is pretty dumb, we elect Republicans for crying out loud. On the other hand, his four wives are fucking hideous. If he wants to marry & tap those four land mines, go for it. He's doing us all a favor by taking those four off the market. Too bad they have kids and our gene pool is at risk.

  69. 69

    What I think is crazy..is that its ok to have women on reality tv degrading themselves..aka "Bad Girls"…but to show a family obviously with consenting adults is considered wrong…I say enjoy their show and leave these people alone! Who cares…..there is no abuse going on, these women are independent, free thinking and are obviously able to make decisions…

  70. 70

    You may not like Nancy Grace, but she is 100% correct in all the points she makes which basically can be summed up like this:They are breaking the law and they will not suffer any consequences for it. So tell me, what is so wrong with what she said? It's the truth.

  71. 71

    He is only legally married to ONE woman. If no one is being abused and the kids are taken care of, leave them alone. What about men who have 5,6,7 baby mama's? I guess if you don't live with them all it makes it ok.

  72. 72

    She is a rotten cow - I bet a nanny raises her kid's - she's already bullied one woman to death- suicide - I don't think she cares about anyone but Nancy she'll do anything for ratings - she'd probably sell one of her kids for the right opportunity

  73. 73

    Re: DogTown
    that was a great post- well said

  74. 74

    NG is seriously a twat. This is a consensual situation. The bigamy laws exist for the assholes who marry several women without any of them knowing. These ladies know what they're getting into and they're cool with it.

  75. 75

    OK Computer says I talk a lot. Yup
    I am going to try to present 10 points over five short postings. I tried to voice my perspective regarding issues identified by others already on this post. If it is too long, skip it.

    Oh, by the way, after more than 17 years of successful marriage, I wholeheartedly attest that women like to be heard and listen to intelligent conversation. The habit expresses itself even when I type.

  76. 76

    3. Gender discrimination. Yeah there is gender discrimination here. He can go to jail for 20 years. The women only face 5 years. Why? Did he force them to do it? Video proves that not to be the case. Why then? Gender Discrimination against men. This happens in every type of crime and civil case regardless of location in the US. Women do less time for same crime than a man would do. Inherent diminished capacity associated with the female psychology? HMMMM. Didn't we evolve beyond this concept? When will the mouthpiece yak on this subject? Also, why are men responsible for supporting the child? Shouldn't both parents be equally responsible? We are all equals now right? Anything Ken can do Barbie can do better! (at least equally)
    4. Equal rights require equal responsibility under the law.

  77. 77

    Even though this show is disturbing how is it any different then the "girls next door"? HH's wife lived in the next house over?

  78. 78

    They are not hurting anyone, people should just let them live their lives, just how we want to be left alone and live our lives the way we want to. They are all doing this out of their choice and does not seem like the kids mind at all, looks like they are happy. Yes, I think it's weird, but who cares, its not my life.

  79. 79


  80. 80

    Nancy Grace, STFU. I live near the family and they are really good people! They do nothing wrong. I certainly wouldn't choose their lifestyle as my own, but let them be and let it go

  81. 81

    I only have one issue with polygamy, and that is the fact that only men seem able to take mutiple wives not the other way around.
    If it wasn't for the gender inequality then I'd be for it, as it's somethign they have gone into as aware and consenting adults. No one is being betrayed.
    And I think -though not sure as I have never seen the show, doesnt air in Uk, not that I'd watch it anyway, I hate reality tv shows - But I think he is only legally married to one & just sort of lives with the others as what I guess can be thought of as mistresses. I saw a Channel 4 doc on it once and that's what they did to get around the law.

  82. 82

    I'd like to see Nancy Grace behind bars. Death Row would be good. Her crimes include unacceptable hair, lethal voice, inflated sense of self-importance, intrusive behavior, obsession with trivial things (this being one), procreation at too advanced an age…

  83. 83

    It is pretty sad that this guy gets so much crap! Huge Hef could be called a plig but oh nooo because he is a huge star it is ok!
    Don't get my wrong this is wierd but they at least are a family and have love all around them.

  84. 84

    Nancy, learn how to speak in a proper accent and then someone will listen to you.

  85. 85

    The other women count as 'single moms' and probably collect welfare and hand him the cheque

  86. 86

    This isn't about lifestyle , it's about 4 women who have no self respect and a guy who wants to screw around and feel like a stag. End of. TV shouldn't be promoting that shit as normal. It isn't.

  87. 87

    These women seem like wonderful people. Why would they cheapen their lives by sharing this scumbag? They deserve much better.
