“Sister Wives” star Kody Brown sweats the bigamy investigation by Utah authorities as his polygamist lifestyle is threatened, according to People. Brown, whose life is aired on a reality TV show, just married his fourth wife, Robyn and the polygamous family has grown from 17 to 21. Brown is worried about being charged with felony bigamy if the state decides to pursue a case.
Kody Brown Worried About Bigamy Investigation
“I just hope they don’t put me in jail for loving four women,” Brown told People.
Kody, 42, who has four wives, and 16 children, has been under investigation since “Sister Wives” began. It’s an investigation that could potentially be charged as felony bigamy and put him in prison up to five years. To say Kody’s sweating this fact, is an understatement.
Lehi, Utah, police turned in their findings to the Utah County Attorney on the investigation last week. The decision is pending whether Kody Brown will be criminally charged.
A Threat to Kody’s Marriages Was Imminent on “Sister Wives”
It’s been nine years since a bigamy charge has been prosecuted in the state of Utah and Brown is hoping he won’t break that record. Luckily for him, he hired a top attorney to defend his polygamist lifestyle.
People reports Kody’s wives accepted the consequences of going public on “Sister Wives” with their polygamous life and explained it to their children. They knew the risk and that there would be someone threatening their lifestyle. They believed it was worth taking the risk to allow viewers to see a different side of polygamy – a very different side than what the headlines have made it.
“We understand the outrage and confusion over our lifestyle,” Robyn said. “We’re still Frankenstein and freaks to a lot of people.”
Kody Brown is sweating the investigation, but how are his wives holding up? They would have quite a dry spell if Kody’s put in jail on a felony bigamy charge. Look at this way, they wouldn’t be having anymore kids for a while.
This investigation into polygamy on Kody Brown’s part make “Sister Wives” all the more interesting to watch on TLC!
