The stars of TLC’s “Sister Wives” were finally handed some good news this week — after a year of constant drama concerning the status of their family, Utah County has decided that they will no longer investigate them under bigamy charges.
According to the Associated Press, the county has now made the decision to close off their investigation as to whether or not Kody Brown broke any laws. It was this investigation that initially led to the family moving to Las Vegas (which became a key storyline of the show), and they responded to it by filing a lawsuit against the county, the state, and also the attorney general. While some of these suits have already been dropped, the one against the county still stands — and Brown’s attorney claims that there are still no plans to drop it now that the case is actually closed.
Moving forward, Utah County has opted that they will only pursue bigamy charges in the event that there is some sort of evidence that there is a victim or a fraud has taken place. Brown is only legally married to his first wife Meri, and his other wives are all “commitment marriages” that he treats the same, despite the government not necessarily looking at it the same way.
Do you think this case met an appropriate end?
