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?
