They must have a lot of influence at national level, because how come its taken so long to charge this man.

How many wives does he have now?

There is a fellow who at the time of his death had married 130 wives and divorced 80 times.

Who knows, but these guys marry children & get them pregnant as quickly as possible. They don't divorce.

The town of Bountiful is in the southeast of my province of British Columbia.
