The Utah County Attorney has confirmed ... the Lehi Police Department has completed their felony bigamy investigation into Kody Brown and his gigantic family -- and the case has been turned over to the Utah County Attorney ... who will ultimately decide whether or not to charge the family with a crime.

In Utah, bigamy can get you 5 years in prison ... though it's rarely prosecuted.

Kody Brown -- who has 3 wives, a fiancée and 13 children -- claims he was aware of the risk he was taking when he decided to put his family on the TLC reality show ... but insists it was a "risk worth taking."

I don't agree with the life style cause of the kiddos, but if the guy is legally married to only 1, religious ceremony the others, how is it bigomy; what law is broken other than something maybe related to the kids welfare. I'm not getting the charges; if what the guy says is true and he is legally married to only one of them.

Gee, how is that whole let's do a reality show and git famous ya'll-working out now?

Maybe they should have stayed hiding in shame, now they are a freak show like all the other reality show wanna-be's with stars in their eyes.

I susepct they would throw the producers out their house in hine-sight huh?

These gals need a dose of self-esteem and a kick in the azzzzz.
The new one esp. she has to have a washer missing to want to hang out with all that mess. And that is a whole lotta mess.....

And lastly, what about the kids? You can't tell me they are just thrilled with their living situation, and now the gig is up and the secret is out there for the public to suck up and judge them at school, sports functions, the mall, parties, dances....should I go on?


Great. Good job there forcing YOUR beleifs on your children. If they didn't have kids, I could care less, but they do.

I thing polygamy is wrong and should be prosecuted since illegal, but I wonder how many of you on here think gay marriage is all fine and dandy? To me that is also an abomination, but in this day and time if you make gay marriage permissable, why not polygamy?

This is still a FREE country right? He's only legally married to one of the women so they aren't breaking the law. I live what's considered a "normal" life; I date the opposite sex, one person at a time. However I am sooooo sick of people thinking they are some kind of god. Who's to say what's "normal"? Just because something is popular doesn't mean its the only way. They aren't putting anyone in danger and they chose this lifestyle. Its not like this guy is living a bunch of secret lives like sooooo many people do. They are a healthy and happy family, back off. Gays should be able to get married and these people should be allowed to live exactly as they are as long as they aren't breaking the law. Quit worrying about trival things. People die everyday because they don't have enough food or access to medicine. Children and animals die due to neglect and abuse everyday! These are real issues, these are the kind of things we should be focused on. Everyone needs to take a minute and think about what's important.

What in the heck is wrong with women that think they should share a husband. Heck maybe in this day and age women should have a harem too.

LET THEM LIVE THEIR LIFE! ITS NOT HURTING ANYONE....LAW ENFORCEMENT SHOULD SPENT THEIR TIME & MONEY ON REAL CRIMES!! IT MAY NOT BE OUR CHOISE OF A STABLE LIFESTYLE BUT ISN'T AMERICA A FREE COUNTRY?

Kody is the grand manipulator. The women grew up in this culture and believe this is God's plan for them and their duty. Yes, he is taking care of the women and children....providing food and shelter and some role as a father. He is the one though who never has to deal with his own feelings of jealousy and insecurity. Those emotions are left for the lesser "women folk"....they somehow see it as their duty to suffer so Kody can be satisfied physically and emotionally. This is a real eye opener. It is truly an emotionally abusive situation. I agree with the poster who suggests we are being asked to accept this kind of marriage and we will next be asked to extend health benefits to dogs and cats living together.

The skinny one with the brown hair is hideously ugly. The one blonde one is fat as a cow. If I was him, I'd run for the hills.

Up the charges! That big wife counts as two. The other big one counts as 1.5. That makes a total of 5.5 wives!

I suspect this guy picks up a new wife whenever a current one tops 200lbs. Har har har.

He is an adulterer. Using God as his excuse. Wonder if they have ever attended a church. NO. They are moran's like all the idiot's in Utah. These women have mental problem's and very very low self esteem to live this way. From looking at them all I think it may be more about total and complete IGNORANCE. Hope they do go down for it. They should.
