'Sister Wives': Brown family moving from Utah to Nevada
Reuters is reporting that Kody Brown and his family from the TLC reality series "Sister Wives" is moving to Nevada after the notoriety they gained from the show brought a criminal bigamy investigation to their doors in Utah.
"The family is pursuing new opportunities in Nevada. I see no legal reason why their family cannot live and continue to thrive in Nevada as they have in Utah," lawyer Jonathan Turley tells Reuters.
Brown is only legally married to Meri, his first wife, but Janelle, Christine and Robyn are in the family as "sister wives" and the five adults plus their 14 children live in one big house together in Lehi, a city south of Salt Lake. (Well, Robyn will be moving in following her wedding to Kody, we assume).
The Lehi Police Department has completed its investigation and turned the findings over to the Utah County Attorney's Office. No charges have been filed.
"In the past, state officials have made it clear to polygamous families in Utah that they would not proceed against them absent evidence of some collateral crime such as child abuse. No such crimes were found in the Brown family after an extensive field investigation," Turley says.
