Utah authorities have decided not to file polygamy charges against Kody Brown and his four wives, stars of the TLC reality program, "Sister Wives."
Utah county began investigating the family before the show aired, prompting Kody, Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn—along with their 17 children—to move to Las Vegas.
Brown then filed a suit against the county, governor and attorney general, after which the latter, Jeff Buhman, filed a motion to have the charges dismissed.
"I want to express our great relief for the Brown family that this long-standing threat has been finally lifted," the Brown family attorney said in a statement.
"The family has spent years being publicly denounced as felons by prosecutors and had to move to Nevada to protect their family and children," he added.
